BRIGID MARLIN VIDEO
Brigid Marlin (born January 16, 1936)
is a fantasy and portrait artist living in England. She paints in the Mische Technique, a medieval method revived by Austrian artist Ernst Fuchs, with whom she studied in Vienna.
Her fantasy work can be classified as Fantastic Realism, i.e. using figurative elements to represent visionary and psychic subjects, often with scriptural themes.
She has painted portraits, inter alia, of the Dalai Lama, J G Ballard and Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother. Her portrait of J G Ballard hangs in the National Portrait Gallery in London.
She founded the Inscape group in 1961, which later became the Society for Art of Imagination.
Brigid is the daughter of children's book author and artist Hilda van Stockum. She married in 1957. She had three sons, the eldest of whom died in 1979. She was divorced in 1980. Some of her experiences in this regard are documented in her book From East to West: Awakening to a Spiritual Search.
