Marlene Zimmerman describes her art as a "twenty-first century fairy tale"—romantic, sensuous, mythic, saturated with color. The cameos of women mirror her own inner joy of life.

One day a silhouette, a cameo, sprung into her mind and set off a series of images she had to paint. Drawn to a palette of magenta, yellow, orange, pink, red, violet, and green, and the subject of women, she began. These are women she describes as much like herself. They have reached an age where they can express a certain satisfaction of self.

Zimmerman, mainly a self-taught artist, has taken classes at the Art Students' League and Parsons through out the years. She has always sketched and painted whenever materials were obtainable. As an undergraduate in college, she had the privilege of being under the tutelage of Jimmy Ernst. He was very encouraging and a huge inspiration.

Art of all civilizations and eras informs her painting, as well as the need to tell a story or raise a mystery.

The intensity of the colors of her palette in the right balance with one another determines the rightness of the painting. She knows a painting is finished when all elements are in a certain harmony and color burns brightly mimicking the true light—the sun. All colors are illuminated by light, some to luminescence.

Zimmerman’s work and research have given her much pleasure, and she wishes it may increase yours.
