Marilyn Comparetto illustrates book written by Mary Bogdan now on release in  Kindle format on Amazon


In the first chapter of Simsian the  scene opens with the story of James,
a boy from 21st century Hastings, and his  friend who are ‘caught’exploring the abandoned Hasting Pier. As the story unfolds James inexplicably arrives on the shores of Simsian where in a confused  state he stumbles across the other  'Islanders'.
The story of Simsian, rising from those seas of dreams into an island, was to become not only the home but also the prison of the children who were swept to it from different eras and backgrounds.  Faced  with the challenge of survival against the battle of the unknown and the creatures that dwelt alongside them, the Islanders’ share a unique bond, the desire to get ‘home’


Marilyn Comparetto

In 2002, after 30 years of drawing and painting through the observation and the delivery of a more illustrative art, Marilyn Comparetto began to experiment. 
Consequently later works very rarely just illustrate the things or people that occupy the world.   Even a representation of objects grouped in a painterly composition may reveal sections of the artist’s own life.

Following an initial intensive time of experimentation, Marilyn finally found she could be totally expressive by breaking all the rules and ignoring all of the criticism around her. Marilyn continues to develop the theoretical approach of portraying emotions and connections intertwined within the compositions of her art work.    Creating paintings by pulling deep thoughts and emotions from her own subconscious or/and from influences in the world around her she spews them onto the canvas.  As part of this process Marilyn often not only gives a visual image but also creates, and attaches, some poems or prose so that the viewer can understand the emotions that were being delivered in front of them.  In an endeavour to give clarity to her approach to the art world, and general public, Marilyn has named this free style form of art Mixism-the ultimate form of expressionism,

Marilyn continues to develop her Mixism works, alongside the more traditional style of works, shown on this website, that that have also been influenced by her move to include emotional connotations.
