Marshall's artist statement, "I always knew I wanted to be an artist. I used to paint on the closet walls behind my mother's dresses. It was pure joy. Later, when I began my formal training, I was inspired by abstract expressionism. By that time. AE was already old hat. The search for 'a new hat' went on for decades.
Recently I decided I would just paint for the sheer joy of it again. I've learned a lot since I was a closet-painter, and I am still learning. The tenets of the mid-century painters are my parameters. A painting is a 2/D surface, not a window on the world; the color, the texture, the shapes, and the edges where one color meets another reveals the content. That's all there is, and it's enough.
I try to keep an empty mind when I am painting and not try to create images or narratives; even so, the result sparks my imagination; and I see something and feel something that I can't put into works that is meaningful to me."
