Marie Brenneis is fascinated with Conformity: Conformity of Beauty and Social Conformity. She is best known for her immersive intense colour artworks.

Her medium is colour, creating large scale 3D painting, installation, sculpture and performance.

A Reader in Colour, she draws from the absence and restrain of bright colours in Western Art and Contemporary Culture.

Marie's deliberate misplacements of reorganising cognition through colour causes a rupture through its disorderliness.

Her work is political in its refusal to conform with acquired narratives of taste and beauty. It goes beyond the object to expand and leak into space and performance . 


Drawing from David Batchelor's book 'Chromophobia' The attempts to purge colour from culture, to devalue colour, to diminish its significance, to deny its complexity.


She also explores the absence of relations between things;  drawing from visual organising principles and cognition and how to break the predicted set up of how our brain sees things.
