Marianne Troll in Unkeler Höfen

Marianne Troll is the other artist I would like to introduce you to. It was my idea to post this shortly after I wrote about the artist Anja Rihm and Gabriele Geier. My bruised rib was another monkey wrench in that thought. A little late but never too late to introduce a great artist. Marianne was so generous to give me approval to use my photos from her art and her German text in this post. Please respect the copyright note at the end of the article out of respect for the artist. Thank you and may you enjoy her art as much as I do.

Meine Themen und Vorhaben, die wie die Knochen in meinem Komposthaufen lange Zeit reifen, beziehe ich aus Alltagsbeobachtungen wie Zufallsprozessen und der Auseinandersetzung mit gesellschaftlichen Fragen. Grundvoraussetzung für die Entstehung von Kunst ist der andere, der mir eigentümliche und gleichzeitig fremde Blick auf die Dinge. Mit dem Rhein als zentraler Landmarke unserer Region lebe ich in ertragreicher Beziehung. Sein Ufer liefert mir das Arbeitsmaterial. Ich lasse mich von Naturformen inspirieren und nehme mich unter dem Eindruck seines unendlichen Fließens in einem großen Zusammenhang wahr.

My topics and projects, which mature for a long time like the bones in my compost heap, I obtain from everyday observations such as random processes and confrontations with social issues. Prerequisite for the creation of art is the other which gave me a peculiar and at the same time a different way of looking at things. With the river Rhine, as a central landmark of our region , I have a profitable relationship. His bank provides me with the work material. I am also inspired by natural forms and I perceive the impression of his infinite flow in a larger context.
