Marianne Charlotte Mylonas-Svikovsky Artist Bio:

Hello, I'm Marlo Mylonas-Svikovsky in Geneva, Switzerland. My Email adress is [email protected] and my website is : www.reves-realites.com I am a swiss native but also of various other european origins; my father was from Vienna, Austria, my family name is polish, my grandmother was from Germany and so on, and I married a greek, had two wonerful children. However tragedies hit them and the curtain dropped suddenly upon this part of my life. Painting and poetry were saviors I grasped at to pull back to life. The way up and the way back to find myself in a completely different phase of life began to be expressed through art, painting, which had been my favorite hobby since I was twelve and has accompanied all my life that began in 1941 and also poetry, putting in images and in words... With my family we lived here and there, for three or four years, so I developed a keen eye and registered in my inner mind like snapshots that later wanted to be re-created on canvas, in their atmospheres and lights. Emotionally striking world events and emotions in general, are also one of my musts, expressing the horror through colours and composition or very strong emotions. Since I am also a poet, my poetic images say through colours and composition what words express,and their is an evident link between painting and poetry. My Third theme are abstracts that, however, do expresss the, at that time, emotional status I am in or any other deep down diffuse feeling that just spurts out and takes shape on the canvas, so to speak by itself, through layers and layers of paint and colours. I having lived and done my schooling in various countries and languages, have developped a critical eye and distance to help rapid adaptation and let sink down in me what I have seen which is reproduced some day on canvas. This explains the variety in my painting and the many techniques to express it I just discover while being plunged in what is happening on the canvas. I always feel absolutely free to paint whatever comes out, don't follow any trend but have always been most interested in painters from all over, having developped a very critical and keen eye. Going to a museum or an exhition is real schooling for me. I would say that a contempary painter I appreciate is Gerhard Richter for his mastery of all the variety present in his paintings and the interioration of political situations he has gone through, expressed in some of his paintings. Nicolas de Staël has also some paintings expressing feelings.I love his colours and compositions for Agrigente. Art is a never ending marvel and I am so lucky to have such a creative nature in everything I do. Painting has always be real joy for me, a need, an urgency often to express something that just has to come out, either in a spurt or after long maturation. Techniques vary in accordance to what wants to be expressed and mediums go from pastels, watercolours, oil to acrylic. I did some art studies at UCLA, University of California at Los Angeles, USA and what I particularly appreciated is that they leave one free. So that's what I've been doing since, just painting what I feel like, letting my imagination fly and the brush or knife or other means, following no trend or no specific influence except the one and only love of art and our great artists that I have no end in looking at. I don't have many exhibits, mainly one a year but they are mostly solo shows with many paintings. Often, I also give a personal poetry reading of my poems which I present in a theatrical way, accompanied by professional musicians. But, at present, due to various opportunities in the big Exhibitions in the USA, I definitely concentrate on painting. Have a look at my website; www.reves-resalites.com with all of my paintings, exhibits, events, poetry booklets and my yearly activities with photographs. My blog: www.lune-de-suchet.com in French mostly, very successful since years, showing my poems and paintings most of the time linked, and personal comments about each article
