Marjorie Guyon is originally from New York, but has lived and worked in Lexington for many years. She has been represented by G R N'Namdi Gallery since the 1980s, and has had many exhibits nationally and locally.
“... Guyon’s vision is one which speaks strongly of her origins in poetry. Her paintings centrally located, page-size collages in large color fields whose time-worn umbers and ochres seem to suggest a sort of relic shrine for their sacred subjects. She describes the collages as ‘pages from an ancient book’ not unlike an artifact that one might find on an archaeological dig. Accordingly, the collages look as if they could be thousands of years old, with frayed edges, fractions missing, and faded colors. As for the subject matter, the artists speaks of looking for essential elements that reflect knowledge from the past that needs to endure and be upheld."
