Woodworking + Painting
California-based artist, Marie McKenzie, creates paintings and wooden sculptures inspired by the natural world. In the presence of tall trees, mountainous and oceanic landscapes, she explores unique and unifying patterns of the Earth. Primarily using reclaimed woods as the foundation for her sculpture, she aims to accentuate the growth of the grain in reverence. Her oil paintings begin with jutting rock formations and disperse somewhere into the ether, she investigates the Northern California landscape through a misty lens.
