Definately not landscape painting
Marlie Burton-Roche is reknowned internationally for both her
political activism and her exceptional artwork, but gets
undeservedly little press at home. Her art, powerful abstract
weddings of what seem to be visceral biology and mettalurgy, is
clearly informed by her experiences during her longstanding work
for democracy and social justice in El Salvador.
This book contains high quality reproductions of her art created
over many years, and focusses on her oils and mixed media pieces.
The art is moving and disquieting, as is the text, which describes
her experiences in the struggle against the forces of repression
Both the art and the text have a high intellectual and emotional
charge. If Chomsky is on your bookshelf, and Cockburn in your CD
player, Burton-Roche belongs on your coffee table.
