At a time when she could not afford to buy paint, Lael Marshall began using common household items as material for her work. She manipulates familiar objects like dishtowels, handkerchiefs, vacuum cleaner bags, and sponges, to create abstract works that underscore the potential for common materials to express texture and geometric pattern. Though paint is absent from these works, Marshall considers them paintings because of the way that she constructs and approaches them. Marshall has an MFA from The Academy of Fine Arts, Munich. Her work has been exhibited in the US, Europe, and Australia. She was featured in BRIC’s 2015 Hand Made Abstract
