The Triple Door: Where do you find inspiration for your art?
Marianne Maksirisombat: I travel a lot. The colors, and forms, of earth I have experienced directly affect my art product. The three dimensional canvas is usually a reflection of hills and valleys I have seen, presented in an abstract way and paired with the colors of the region I have been to.
TD: If you could have dinner with any visual artist, living or dead, who would it be? What would you ask him/her?
MM: A visual artist I admire, but whom was also an architectural genius, is Antonio Gaui. I would ask him how he communicated nature so well with so little, as well as how he approached creating load bearing structure with organic lines and no right angles. That is my goal, and he did a magnificent job with it.
TD: Describe your work in three words:
MM: Color, Form and Flow
TD: What is your favorite historical artistic movement?
MM: Art Nouveau
TD: What are some of your other artistic outlets?
MM: I play the violin, guitar and piano, but have also done trash fashion runway shows and I currently have been doing album covers for local bands.
TD: Who do you listen to while you create?
MM: I am greatly influence by music. I am voracious for it. If you are on spotify.. check out my mix grittie indie and you will see exactly what kind of music I listen to while I create. Some favorites are The Black Angels, Led Zeppelin, Black rebel Motorcycle Club, WU LYF and Brian Jonestown Massacre.
TD: What is your favorite color?
