When experiencing the art of Marion Peck, one enters a wonderful world full of solitude and detachment that is at the same time heartbreakingly sweet, irrepressibly optimistic and full of humor. One of the leading ladies of Pop Surrealism, she creates compositions that are characteristically cartoonish and uses a style that is instantly recognizable. Looking beyond the subconscious, she populates her dreamlike canvases with strange and cute creatures, always reminding us that the waking world is never quite as it seems. While depicting these atypical subjects in a dreamlike manner, she focuses on a specific sense of humor which ranges from joyous to quite sarcastic. Drawn from dreams and dreamlike states to inhabit fantastic, outlandish landscapes, these memorable characters burst with life, or are simply adorable, soft or funny. Distorting reality and reducing it to a mere farce, her canvases all have a specific story to tell. Through this distinctive and considerable body of work she created over the last twenty years, Marion has been showing us that while life can be ominous, tragic, or even deceptive, it is also beautiful, magical and full of hope.
