about marilyn biles
Artist StatementEvery vision of the world implies some sort of philosophy. My art is motivated by a spiritual force that compels a means of expression. It is the language by which I interpret the universal creative spirit as it becomes known to me. It is the means of expressing the passion for finding the truth that is me as I uncover the purposes, boundaries and directions of my mind. Every painting is a new research project done in the unproved present creating symbols from experiences that express myself as I contact and am inspired by the world. Unselfconsciously, I am exposing my inner life to others whose tastes and opinions are different but nevertheless are as valid as my own. To the extent that I am able to think and see with a difference, others will in turn be enriched by my art. Ms. Biles is also the Co-founder of Edot Gallery and Curator through January 2011.
