Collector Profile: Marleigh Culver

Tappan artist Marleigh Culver is known for her graphic use of color and romantic sensibility. We sat down with Marleigh to curate a collection of her favorite artworks and discuss the influence these pieces have on her own artistic practice. 

Q.

Who are your favorite emerging artists right now?

 

A.

I love Ethan Caflisch, Inès Longevial, and Renée Gouin.

Q.

What inspires you in the work of other artists?

 

A.

I get inspired by other’s compositions and shapes mostly. They do something that makes me think of something different to do and realize we all digest things in different ways.

Q.

What kind of art were you drawn to when curating this collection and why?

A.

Since my work is very graphic and bold, I tend to lean to work that is softer and more layered than my own. I love harmonious colors, something my eyes could cross on a wall and feel a calm or feeling of romance from. I do love clean, round shapes, anything that hints to the circle of life. 

Q.

What mood did you want to create in this collection?

A.

Something strong with feminine feeling and colors that feel very balanced. Something that could adorn a restaurant or living room to connect viewers.

 

Q.

What is your favorite work in the collection?

A.

I love the feminine abstract sculpture by Carla Cascales Alimbau, the lines aren’t completely perfect and it’s a thickness that resonates from jewelry cuts and shapes. I love how sculpture can be so minimal with materials used. The Heidies’ photos of graphic shapes in space shot in black and white are really lovely. I love a combination in a mixed media piece like that. Maureen Meyer’s collages have pleasant color mixing with distinct shape mixing. Johanna Tagadas painted pieces and composition are very beautiful, loose in a way of daintiness and some mystery.
