Any art lover who enjoys thought-provoking artworks and meeting talented and interesting artists is encouraged to attend.
About the Artist
At the heart of Marliese Scheller’s artwork are the techniques that she has mastered to perfection. While she studied Art History, Archaeology and Fine arts, Scheller credits much of her artistry to the mentors she worked with early in her career; from Frans Masereel, she learned graphic art and the “Masereel” technique, a process of ink drawing and keeping only those that are perfect and from Henry Gowa she learned the secrets of a luminous palette and gained insight to the realm of true colors. These teachings combined with Marliese’s technique of fresco oil painting define her creative process.
Traveling to Lebanon, initially for an archeological dig, Scheller became immersed in the art culture. Her interests deepened and she became well versed in Zouk Mikael, a traditional Lebanese arts and craft. For three years, Scheller trained weavers in the Aubusson style of tapestry weaving. At the peak of her interest, the first tapestry exhibition took place and she took great pride in being a vital part of the revival of Zouk Mikael. As an artist, Scheller believes that inspiration evolves with time, a theme that is
most relatable in her artistic journey.
