Exhibition of Marjory Boyle Crooks' film work and large ink studies inspired by storytellers.
This exhibition offers a rich mixture of arts, a multi-layered entertainment of stories, storytellers, films and intriguing portraits that embed the storytellers in their tales.
Marjory Boyle Crooks trained in Fine Art at ECA and has moved from working successfully in commercial design, to painting, film, education and illustrated portraiture. Marjory has enjoyed the art of good storytelling since childhood and this motivated her, in recent years, to begin working closely with storytellers and filming events at the storytelling centre. Storytelling is an ancient art form that has been carried down through generations. Digital media allow performances to expand beyond the immediacy of the room and yet retain the intimacy for the listener. Working directly with each storyteller on location, shooting the films as well as portrait sittings, allowed Marjory to connect at a deeper level and gain an understanding of the uniqueness of each telling of the tale. Her portraits are large ink studies and distil the story and the teller, with her commanding use of line. The frame evokes the experience of the tale, the storyteller and the essence of the story. Her film work is focused on capturing the heritage of this ancient art form in this digital age.
