Acrylic on raw canvas, maple frame | 2023
The new series Tumult from Marleigh Culver has death and rebirth of new life situations at its heart - beautiful forms with frenetic energy. The chaotic scramble of some of the pieces vs. the confined and carefully composed feeling of others shows a struggle of meditative rest and the trap of circular obsessive thinking.
Each piece is an exploration of different paths in search of a solid future, a parallel commentary of a life wandering and hoping to make it to a finish line.
This is the first series created in Marleigh Culver's new LA-based painting studio.

“...remain true to myself. To make work that is undeniably me and uniquely my own. I hope to make things that move people, but if I make work just for others without putting myself in it, it won’t carry.”
