Marilyn offers demonstrations in an unusual format for in addition to demonstrating ways of working with mixed media onto a large canvas, she also talks about her life, art and the progression towards Mixism.
Marilyn also brings along an exhibition of paintings showing the many different disciplines that she is able to work across. The exhibition also contributes largely towards demonstrating how her ideas are developed into a visual concept.
If you are looking for something different for your members that will encourage them to 'think outside of the box' then this is the demonstration for you.

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 poetry 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'.
Today Marilyn continues to develop her Mixism works, alongside the more traditional style of paintings that that have also been influenced by her move to include emotional connotations
