The 60-piece retrospective comprises prints, textiles, 3D, mixed media, drawings, paintings and works including quotes, poetry and words.

‘This is truly a journey from early figurative works to most recent tree drawings,’ she said of the show, which opens at Joondalup’s blend(er) gallery today.

‘It is once again embracing the element of chance, allowing the unpredictability of it to influence my making processes.

‘My more recent work is without explicit reference to a recognisable image as I’m not always producing something that already exists but creating new things and images.

‘My practise is based around the notion of fragility of us as humans, our memory, of the land, the environment and the universe.

‘I’ve been searching for ways to create using nature.

‘Working with a range of materials from the raw and the found to the discarded, noting how we and everything around us leaves a mark in some way.’

Finding My Way is at the gallery in Central Walk until Friday, November 8, open Tuesdays to Fridays, 10am to 2pm.

The award-winning artist, who studied visual arts as a mature student, will give an artist’s talk this Friday, November 1, at 10am, tea/coffee available.

Marilyn will celebrate her show with a party on Sunday, November 3, 2-4pm, including harp and flute music, all welcome.
