This artwork started when I picked up a filmy scarf on a secondhand stall that had the most gorgeous blues in it. I just had to have it. It cost me a whole dollar and I was delighted with my purchase. But I didn't want to wear it. Oh no, I had other ideas for it... Collage material๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ There are bits of that scarf all over this artwork and that's where the name came from ie out of the blues. I had great fun choosing complementary collage items and colours but the whole artwork was built around my one dollar scarf!

Spin โ€“ we see and hear it everywhere. In fact there is a whole industry out there whose job it is to influence the way we think, what we โ€œneed" etc. I set out to create a high energy painting (acrylic on gallery linen) which conveyed my frustration and resistance to continually being โ€œsucked inโ€ using as my metaphor, the amazing seed pods of the Acacia Cyclops that I saw while camping on the South Coast of Western Australia.

FOR SALE from artist (A$ 325)

I had great fun with this little artwork as it has changed its orientation so many times. It announced early on that it wanted to be called "Guardians" and I think that title really works any way up. I'm leaving it this way for now but really you get 4 artworks in 1!

I challenged myself to create an artwork using red (and therefore it's complement, green), colours I very rarely use. I was way out of my comfort zone and it was a huge struggle but after many, many layers I'm finally happy with the depth and the richness of colour.

29th June 2012, Mixed Media / Collage by Chris Marshall, Perth WA, FOR SALE

Original 91 x 91cm (36 x 36 inches) mixed media / collage painting on gallery wrapped canvas, not framed
FOR SALE from artist's collection (A$ 1,995)

Contact Chris for more information

I created this artwork after going to the Art Gallery of Western Australia to see an exhibition of artworks on loan from MoMA in New York called "Picasso to Warhol, 14 Modern Masters". I came away absolutely convinced that art could be anything you wanted it to be and it was ok to do my art my way regardless of what other people thought or said.

So in a way the artwork is an affirmation, a 91cm (36 inch) square canvas, mixed media / collage of our entry tickets, train tickets and little posters of the exhibition plus all sorts of unrelated stuff. I just went pretty crazy with it, including scrawling text all through it which says "on 29th June 2012 I went to the Art Gallery of Western Australia and saw Picasso to Warhol 14 Modern Masters exhibition. It confirmed my belief that art is whatever you want it to be".

Inspired by the words of a Swedish schoolgirl (Greta Thunberg) who got to take her environmental message to the 2018 United Nations Climate Action Summit. WOW. ๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’š

These words are collaged into the artwork ...
Greta Thunberg
"Save the Planet"

"No one is too small to make a difference"

"You must not gamble your children's future on the flip of a coin. Instead, you must unite behind the science. You must take action. You must do the impossible, because giving up can never ever be an option."

."There is hope - I've seen it - but it does not come from the government or corporations; it comes from the people. The people who have been unaware are now starting to wake up, and once we become aware we change. We can change and people are ready for change."

Food for thought eh?

Frozen, Mixed Media / Collage by Chris Marshall, Perth WA

It was only 2 days into Winter and we, being absolute weather wimps, were already hanging out for Spring! I'd been intending to paint over this little canvas but it suddenly got a reprieve...I decided to just tweak it a bit and make it look like ice. Tthis is the result, it's just called "Frozen".

The Light at the End of the Tunnel, Mixed Media / Collage by Chris Marshall, Perth WA

This work started when I lightly gessoed completely over a colourful mixed media/collage that had stalled. I blocked in some large shapes with quinacridone red violet, raw umber and burnt umber which quickly became rather gorge like. At this stage, the artwork announced that it was going to be called "The Light at the End of the Tunnel" and although I have added heaps of different collage elements to it since, it has insisted on that title all the way along. So obviously the title must have sprung into my head because of COVID and it's a message of hope and resilience. It's a rocky road out with many unexpected turns and obstacles along the way but we will get there in the end. Is it any wonder my artwork is getting weirder?

A bit of a play on words. I see this multi-layered artwork as a torrent of water flowing like over a waterfall and carrying debris along (plus I went a bit over the top with all the collage materials!). What do you see?

Originally created for the Year of the Book, I really went to town on this one photographing our bookshelves and individual covers for collage. It also contains a list of 100 books to read before you die and an article from 1912 on the dangers of reading in bed. Of course you can't see any of these specific details now.
