Marlise Keith expressed the following of her time at Warren Editions and very brief thoughts on the monotypes. “There are very few times in my life that I feel like an “Artist” and I felt like an “Artist” working at Warren Editions. The level of professionality and knowledge of this field is super impressive.

The monotypes were a major challenge, because I had to be patient (not one of my strong points) with the print process and also had to work in oils after about 15 years of separation. I have a love/ hate relationship with oils, and can honestly say that it was love all the time. This time around. I loved the time it gave me, and the forgiving nature of the oils.

These prints are part of my process of coming to terms with migraines. If I were in America, I would have been classified as a disabled person. Latest research suggests it is a brain disorder. I have to come to terms with being “disabled”, and “brain disordered”. Migraines, disability and brain disorders are hard task masters and they wreck havoc with my psychological as well as physical well-being. So I process them in my work. I wish that I could say that this process allows for a light at the end of the tunnel. Truth be told, the light petrifies me and only makes me reach for my very big sunglasses in anticipation of  yet another migraine. Torture. For as long as I’m alive.”

Marlise Keith lives in Clovelly and draws primarily in acrylic inks on paper and board. Her work was described by critic Melvyn Minnaar in the Cape Times (26 June 2008) as “The glorious and mysterious things of [a] fleeting world [are] what Marlise Keith uses to define her astonishing individual, complicated visual tales. An artist with a…brooding, vivid original voice”.

Keith studied BA Fine Arts at the University of Pretoria, which was completed in 1995 and completed her Master’s Degree in Fine arts at the University of Stellenbosch in 2000. To keep the wolf from the door, she taught art at high school level and later was head of the Production Design Department at AFDA, a tertiary film school before finally committing to do art full time in 2006. She has participated in various group shows nationally and abroad. Her first solo show was in 2000. Her most recent solo exhibition, Histrionix took place at Brundyn+Gonsalves in 2013. Keith’s works can be found in various collections in South Africa, America, Australia, Britain, France, Germany and Sweden.
