Marlene Kurland

I'm a true romantic and I'm a real people person in my personal life and in my art. I love to create people, engaging with them, and challenging myself to really feel what is going on between my subjects. Somehow, I can get to know their hearts as I look into their eyes, just as we all do when we meet someone or are trying to get to know someone better.  Much of my work is commissioned, creating large family oil portraits, telling the stories that are inspired by collectors' favorite photos.  I do not measure, using only my eyes, I capture the resemblances of each subject, in my own colorful way.

In my upcoming exhibition at Agora Gallery, Sept 17- October 8th, I am trying to capture the treasured moments of my collectors' most cherished life moments and family celebrations. Their photos are my inspiration; my eyes and heart take me through the creative process through my use of rich vibrant oils. I adore getting to know my subjects through my commissioned pieces; even my own family members, as in Nicole & David's Wedding, have revealed themselves to me, displaying yet another side I was not completely aware of beforehand.  In my past exhibition at Agora, I made fun of how we are all so addicted to our cell phones and the cyber world in general; we are more connected to our devices than we are to each other at times. It is a sad social statement but I still created these paintings in my usual joyful and happy style.

The way I feel in the beginning of painting my subjects compared to the way I feel when the piece is complete is totally different. When finished, I always feel like I know them on a much deeper level. Whether I'm right or not is not the point. I am as unsure of my analysis of the people in my paintings as I am of the people I meet at the nearest Starbucks. I just know that I love to meet, to connect, to feel and sometimes to love as many people as I possibly can. People are what bring me the most happiness and painting anything that does not have a person in it, is just not as exciting.
