Marlene Healey’s lush, earth-toned “Levitating Sphere” abounds with iridescent shapes textured like hammered metal and rich marble. Healey’s unplanned abstract images are created from spontaneously layered paint, which developed from her background in fashion and costume design which give her a certain freedom in respect to colors, textures, and composition. Most known for her free flowing art pieces, Healey works in Surrealist, Impressionist and Neoclassical styles.
Marlene Healy’s luxuriously textured, elegantly colored artworks command attention. Textural pieces with abstract designs, Healey layers paint, without a vision of the final image that will emerge. Her art incorporates Neoclassical, Impressionist, and Surrealist styles, and her attunement to color, texture and composition is enhanced by a fashion and costume design background. Healy also excels at silkscreening, African dance, performance art, etching, mono printing, mosaics and beadwork.
