About Marjorie Guyon: Layers of history and time are a constant in the work of Marjorie Guyon. One of the hallmarks of Guyon's work is that the image at once emerges from, yet disappears into an ancient surface. Yet, she also seems to be lighting the path of time. It may well be the dynamic between the two impulses that gives her haunting images their appeal. To build her compositions, she works in collage & applies marble dust and pigment-earth from all over the world to create an archeology of the soul. Her work is both contemporary and ancient - a blend of mythology and graffiti.
Art with a heart—A portion of the proceeds from each piece sold goes toward the “I WAS HERE” project. I Was Here is a public art project that features images of contemporary African American men, women, and children recreated as Ancestor Spirit Portraits. A series of installations of these iconic Portraits transform sites of formerly enslaved into ‘on the street’ museums designed to educate, unify communities while creating memorials in public spaces. The mission of the project is twofold—to create a visual testament of those who were sold into slavery and to instill a deeper understanding of our common humanity and create a means to “see the world with different eyes.” Each installation is accompanied by an opening Sanctification ceremony that brings community voice, song and spoken word to the public’s experience.
