Marina Louw allows imperfection to augment the wonder of our human existence and this is what underpins her simple yet powerful mark making. She is inspired by many but copies none. Marina’s recent painting ‘Deceased is us’, is not macabre as one would imagine on first glance but is rather a celebration of a life and love lived with her ex-husband of many decades. It does not deny human temporality or the passing of relationships. It does not try to eternalize or improve. It merely remembers the continued love in spite of living different lives. Louw chooses not to gloss over the loss but chooses to embrace the memory.
