Marx's modern abstract impressionist paintings combine formal elements with spontaneous, colorful emotive responsiveness, resulting in paintings as dynamic as they are compelling.
She paints outside, en plein air, with her feet barefoot on the grass, allowing her to truly experience the landscape and capture what she sees and feels on canvas. Marx doesn’t paint flowers to paint flowers. She paints flowers to paint color.
Marx inhales nature as she paints, and then exhales her sensations in a truly impassioned creation of color that epitomizes the moment. Her goal is to capture the essence of a painting, the color and the emotion, and leave the rest to the viewer’s imagination, to bring him into the painting. She paints nature but is not limited by it. Above all, Marx has been inspired by the Impressionist paintings of Claude Monet.
"They call me Mme. Monet in jest, but they are right," Marx said. "I have inherited the soul of Monet.”
She has painted on Monet’s bridge, but has gone beyond, painting impassioned colorful canvases that are in a style all her own, according to a release from the gallery.
Exhibited widely throughout the United States, Marx’s work can be found in private collections in the United States and abroad.
Marx lives in Orange, New Jersey. The paintings being shown were painted in Montclair, New Jersey.
