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 reshaped 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, pastel and paint.

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

A book of my cyanotype/mixed media work is soon to be published by Kozu Books.  Signed copies of ‘Sea Signatures’ will be on sale during the studio tour weekend and can also be ordered via my website.
