Native New Yorker Marilyn Henrion has an incredible series of paintings and mixed media art focused around the windows of New York City, both interior and exterior.
Marilyn Henrion’s focus on windows in their various permutations has metaphorical implications that are not lost on this artist. From Renaissance paintings to cinema and cyberspace, the window has always been perceived as a mediator between spaces. Windows are the visual bridge between inside and out. Though transparent, the window may serve as the barrier or the link between the viewer and the world beyond. To those outside, it may reflect the world, or provide one with a glimpse of the inside. To those inside, it may shield them from the reality outside or offer a connection to it. The intimate life stories behind windows are limitless, as are the events seen through the windows as they unfold throughout time.
