Marianthi Lainas


Having spent most of my life living a stone’s throw from the beach, my work is inspired by the transient beauty of the littoral landscape.  At the dynamic edges of the land, the shore is in a constant state of flux. Temporary lines and textures are formed by wave and wind, the landscape resculpted twice daily.

I combine photographic techniques with mixed media processes to visually interpret these cycles of ebb and flow.  Most recently I have been working out at the strandline with light-sensitive papers and back in the studio with wax, fibres and paint.

I exhibit regularly in solo and group shows across the UK, and am represented by galleries in London, Scotland and NW England. 

I continue to explore book arts as an alternative way of presenting my work and have recently created several new, handcrafted Collector’s Editions.
