Marilyn Honigman evokes mystery and suspense through her atmospheric drawings of skies–clouds and gathering storms. Her expression of both the representational and abstract aspect of skies speaks to the poetry and the universality of that most personal connection with nature and the environment.
Honigman’s skies are animated. Blink and the clouds have shifted. Her use of graphite is testament to her skill with the medium, and her love of drawing. Marilyn Honigman has exhibited at galleries and institutions in New York and Florida and at the Corcoran Gallery in Washington DC. She has received numerous awards and fellowships.
