BARRON, Marion

My work is inspired by an interest in buildings and architecture, especially mid-20th century design and the aesthetic of Brutalist architecture.Brutalist buildings are rarely just functional, utilitarian and grey.They have many different textures, some elements of colour, a variety of materials beyond the familiar concrete and the odd decorative feature. I try to draw on all of this.

I graduated from Edinburgh University/Edinburgh College of Art with an Honours Degree in Painting in 2015. Since then, I have worked out of my studio at the Fire Station Creative in Dunfermline.I have participated in a broad range of group exhibitions, including the RSA, SSA, RSW and VAS open exhibitions and will have my first solo show at the Fire Station in October 2019.
