Marianne Charlotte Mylonas-svikovsky

I live in Geneva, Switzerland and am Swiss and Austrian, from Vienna; also other european origins further back. With my parents I stayed here and there for three or four years at a time, like Montreal, in the swiss mountains, Lugano (italian part of Switzerland) Los Angeles USA, Tunisia, Greece, Vienna, Rome and then settled down in Geneva that I love. I was born in 1941 so have seen and gone through lots, all registered in my mind and soul which one day needs to burst out. Then I take the brush, a knife, my fingers whatever and plunge into the canvas working until a little voice inside me says: "that's it now"!

I started painting at the age of twelve and never quite stopped. It was at UCLA, Los Angeles, where I lived for four years, that I majored in Art. They taught me to just go ahead and paint and feel free and that just corresponds my inner self and need. My work is intuitive, instinctive and talks about what moves me, sometimes recent world events, personal feelings, atmospheres, vibations through lines and the choice of colours the composition- It can be meaningful abstracts or figurative inspired images in original compositions or poetic images like atmospheres, sky and sea, snow , imagined but never copied

I only have one or two exhibitions a year here in Geneva, most of the time solo, but also in Milano and London. I also translate the images in words and am a performing poet; paintings and words with music go so well together. My work is really very personal and my hand just follows, with the varied techniques I manage, to relate what moves me or then reproduces, like a snapshot, although never copies, i have withhold in my mind.

World emotionally impacting events and earth extraordinary phenomena

World emotionally impacting happenings and events, pictures of natural phenomena, atmospheres

In the tornado's eye, acrylic, 80/60 cm “In the tornado's eye, acrylic, 80/60 cm”

It waas during a summer when there where so many tornadoes in the USA and often images of them were shown on television. So I just felt like giving color to a huge cylone and imagined being in the center of it. I seemed obvious to me that it should be red, yellow and green surrounded by black. I love doing those quick, dynamic circles which I accentuate a little afterwards, but the first stroke must be just right, done very quickla and decisively. Asian have recognized this in my painting a fact that the practice their whole lifetime. I also wanted to represent the power and tremendous strength of this phenomena.

Northen lights acrylic on canvas, 90cm/60cm, 3cm “Northen lights acrylic on canvas, 90cm/60cm, 3cm”

That year the news talked a lot about the beautiful northern lights and I felt like taking up the theme. What I wanted to show is the rapidity they swish around in the sky and the awe and wonder they provoke. So I chose strong pastel colours. I can say this now but I just got down to painting with the idea of northern lights and this is the image that came forth. I integrate something and it gushes forth, mind and hand acting together. Besides that, by itself, it's a smashing image and composition I had great pleasure painting.

Exoplanet oil and acrylic on canvas, 1m/1m/ 3 cm. “Exoplanet oil and acrylic on canvas, 1m/1m/ 3 cm. ”

It was the big news in 2014 that the first planet outside of our galaxy had been discovered by an astrophysician way up the mountain of St.Luc, in the swiss Alps, in the Valais, in a tiny typical chalet village, by his small but powerful enough telescope The man just coudn't believe it that this tiny dot on his sky should be something so extraordinary - a planet in another galaxy! So he sent out a message, asking for confirmation to all observatories in the world and next morning he got confirmation from the big Mount Palomar observator in California. Wow he had hit the jackpot! So, I wanted to depict this planet moving along in space, a space with many colorful things happening in it, moving along like on a screen and this big golden ball full of sort of lives on it, pushing along, surrounded by it's glow and a strange even space sound resounding everywhere.

World's madness spreading like a flood - Syria. 80cm H/60 cm W, 2cm, Acylic 22.2013 “World's madness spreading like a flood - Syria. 80cm H/60 cm W, 2cm, Acylic 22.2013”

When the world became aware in 2013 of the Lampedusa tragedy off the shores of the little italian isle of Lampedusa; people fleeing Syria's war and massacers, and drowning in the sea. Under the emotion of these events, I took the brush and the red paint tube and this cross of dripping blood came forth ...

The mangrove, Bresil. Oil 1,20H-1m, 2cm. 07.2011 “The mangrove, Bresil. Oil 1,20H-1m, 2cm. 07.2011”

The mangrove in Bresil: water, plants all over, muddy earth, sun trying to filter through the luxurious, entangled vegetation. Again one of those works I plunge in with the knife, quickly before it dries and give the finishing touch after here and there but hardly any in this one. The difficulty is to know when to stop.

The huge red moon, hitting you right in the eye, so low in the sky, like a huge red balloon, this is what I wanted to paint in a black sky as smooth as a laquered japanese box with nothing else. I wanted the moon to really stick out, so it is structed

Helping hands against despair, acrylic 90H/60W, 3cm “Helping hands against despair, acrylic 90H/60W, 3cm”

Throughout history there have been moments when helping hands were needed, confidence and hope. Today in one of those moments and I wanted to represent it in a painting. These three figures almost happened by themselves and I just had to accentuate them. This sometimes happens when I paint under emotional feelings about dramatic news, the mind and heart guide the hand and a miracle happens. There is nothing intelectual or planned about it.

Part of my "Our world" theme, this crasy painting is quite atypical for me but it just happened and I enjoyed painting it till the very end. What is up there, what are these worlds we eternally question, study, imagine and lend meaning to. These fantasy shapes swirling around, floating through the darkness, are somewhat linked and talking to us, bringing colour and life to the all englobing darkness, our own darkness...

Red moon, acrylic 60L/50H cm, 3 cm. Like a japanese laquer box, just one golden-red moon “Red moon, acrylic 60L/50H cm, 3 cm. Like a japanese laquer box, just one golden-red moon”

Vibrations through lines and colors

Vibrations through lines and choice of colours is one of my themes, object of an exhibition in 2014 in Milano and Geneva. The works may be partly structured so as to accntuate a facet of the atmosphere I want to convey. Color association is most important in arousing these vibrations.

Atmospheres, light, and sky, poetic images

Sometimes I feel like rendering a certain atmosphere, a specific time of the day or the season, the colors of a place, a specific sky in an abstract but also figurative way. Since I'm also a poet, it can also be a poetic image instead of a description in words

Emotions, emotional action

There was a time i was so full of émotions they just spurt out of me on the canvas, sometimes even the feet, the hands and the fingers had to participate; it just happened on the spur of the moment. These are almost all oil paintings and it sure was exhilarating to walk in the paint or smear it on the canvases.

Antagonistic discussions, acrylic 80 x 69 cm, 2 cm. Thrown on canvas under the emotional stress of such an event -important votations “Antagonistic discussions, acrylic 80 x 69 cm, 2 cm. Thrown on canvas under the emotional stress of such an event -important votations”

Meaningful abstracts. The urge to paint without preconceived idea, just a link to the present behind it

Sometimes I like to paint an abstract but there is always somekind of meaning behind it, to which there is a link in the present or past. It's mainly the pleasure of painting and the pressure it excerts to pass to action without any preconceived idea.

Follow the light, acrylic 70H/60Lcm, 2 cm. In the darkness, follow the light and it's shimmerings. Inspired by pointillism “Follow the light, acrylic 70H/60Lcm, 2 cm. In the darkness, follow the light and it's shimmerings. Inspired by pointillism”

This painting started as a complete abstract, without any preconceived idea, except the pleasure of painting. As there are several layers of paint and the consequent irregularities, layer after layer and scratching produced a pointilism effect and shimmering effect. I accentuated an upward mouvement of white, that is light which led me to the title, corresponding to my life-moto I always come back to.

On a red-hot whirling background representing our todays active world and minds, forever searching for excellence, I found this way to represent thoses many ideas cropping up like lots of pop-ups, in our minds, one brilliant one in particular, although the smallest but maybe the most promising one of them all... Ideas and ideas, little lights rising constantly in our lives into the future to bring light and progress

Abstract expessionism

Sometimes I feel like painting an abstract and this happens most times when I am in a specific mood and like a force pushing me to paint, to take the brush and colours and go for it, let it come out, whatever it is. And then the title, since there has to be a title because Untitled does not mean anything, becomes obvious. At a certain undetermined point, Inside me, a little voice then says "now stop" and the painting is finished but I have expessed somehting, some feeling, some questioning inside me which has been given expression on the canvas

Sceneries like daydreams or nightdreams

Inspired by my mental representations of various sceneries I have seen during my life, these daydreams and nightdreams sometimes surge from inside me. It is the atmospheres, the colours, the general view that I represent and not a copied scene although they might recall a specific one

Color Puzzles. Abstracts of various color combinations but not of perfect repeated geometric forms, neverless in perfectly harmonious combination

I thought of the colors of my painting "Social media leaking..." of a style and new effect and color combination. I thought of painting a another work assorted to this one as far as the colors are concerned. So this completely abstract form was born and in the end il looked like a puzzle. It wasn't that easy to make both sides harmonize and to achieve shadings in all sections except the turquoise ones
