Marlene Wlodarczyk

I graduated from The University of Northampton in Fine Art in 2015. My primary studio practice is both figurative and semi abstract, using several print techniques, but mainly relief printing and collagraph. Colour is important to me; having spent many years living in a tropical climate I need bright colours in my life.

My work is about line, contour, shape and layering - taking inspiration from the memories, travel and the people in my life. It reflects an investigation into both personal and collective memory, what this means to me and how I have absorbed elements from the environments I have lived in. Memories are not always true – how much is imagined?

In my prints, I explore themes and ideas that I come across in everyday life whether physical or more ephemeral; a fleeting memory of places or people; sometimes fading, sometime clear and bright.

My work has been exhibited at Freerange, Brick Lane, London; locally at the  Three Hares Gallery, Olney and at the St Georges Avenue Campus Gallery in Northampton. I am a member of ArtsNetworkBedfordshire and regularly exhibit in their events.
