Art is our perceptions of reality....When we look at people with an open mind and when we allow ourselves to wonder why they are so captivating we allow ourselves to look beyond their hidden messages. Similarly, when we allow ourselves to listen to the things that really matter and when we let go of the things that prevent us from seeing the splendour and beauty around us we enter the reality of life.
My world is no different to anybody else and together we all form part of the biggest and most impressive balancing act of the universe which is life on earth. With each brush stroke, with each speckle of paint my art reflects the tranquillity and balance I have found in the greatness of life and the art of living! Marina Blight
A UK based writer and film director Paul Rowlston says the following about her work. As a film maker I'm always looking at life through a frame of some sort. Marina's frames are full of beauty and joy. I've seldom seen skies look more dramatic and there is always a quality of light in Marina's work that shines out of every frame.
Marina is passionate about her artwork and the meaning it has for her. Each painting she creates is, in fact, a view through a small window in her mind. The view we see is wonderful, and is at the same time, a memory of a moment in her life which she has chosen to share with the viewer. Lately, these views show expansive landscapes and emotive scenes of the ocean in all moods. The paintings are so capably executed and meticulously devised, that they leave the viewer with a feeling of utter contentment and peace." - Group Art Consultant for a large corporate (Name with held by artist for the purposes of privacy)
My art forms part of Corporate Collections and Private Collectors, both in South Africa and in the UK. My first corporate sale is a oil on canvas titled "Man without a dog". My art hangs in various premises of the FirstRand Banking Group and in regional offices of Rand Merchant Bank (Private Bank)
