Marjorie Sayer’s goal is to explore ways to experiment with the figure and landscape in different spatial relationships.  She wants the figure to exist and be recognizable but gradually become more abstract by bold strokes of color and gesture.  The finished paintings are a result of numerous layers of paint creating a sense of tension between areas of lightness and heaviness, having human forms that seem to emerge, then disappear.   “I love the expressive tactile quality that I arrive at by using Impasto oil paint applied with a palette knife.  The creation of the painting is rapid and the result is texture and exhilaration,“ she says.   Her response to both the figure and to landscape is immediate. It is visceral.   Charcoal highlights the gesture in mark making.    She says that landscapes are another matter; they embrace the ground, sky, barns and are joyful and rich with color.
