Rockland artist exhibits work at River Arts throughout October – Knox County Village
DAMARISCOTTA / ROCKLAND – River Arts presents a solo exhibition of the work of Marli Thibodeau in the River Room. The “Freedom + Discipline” show will take place from October 7 to 27. An opening reception and an artists’ conference on the language of non-objective composition will take place on Saturday, October 9 from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.
Thibodeau is a contemporary artist born in the Hudson Valley in New York and currently living in Rockland. His work is influenced by the natural world and the lineage of Abstract Expressionism. Thibodeau immerses himself in the study of the landscape that surrounds him and in the inner landscape of self-discovery through movement and the visual arts.
Thibodeau says, “I believe everyone has a unique way of expressing the experience of who they are, and I have discovered that mine is through visual art and unchoreographed movement. I study the structure and movement of the natural world around me and bring this experience to the studio when I paint. This set of works explores the idea of freedom that resides within the discipline. As an artist, I find that my greatest freedom comes from the structures of the discipline, and I have further explored the use of structure / discipline and how it relates to intuition / freedom in these paintings. .
Thibodeau maintains a year-round studio in Rockland and teaches Azul Conscious Movement, a path of personal transformation. His work has been exhibited in Maine and is in private collections in the United States and Europe. It can be found on MarliThibodeau.com.
