Artist Statement
"Painting the Outer Cape is a simple pleasure, defined by its beauty, tranquility and its penetrating light"
Marrinan was born in London England in 1966, he has lived on the Outer Cape since 1999. The Outer Cape provides one with a wonderful delicate but bold palette defined by the influence and interaction of both water and land, as if they are dancing to the same intricate beat. Painting that dance is what I set out to achieve which in turn can bring such vitality to any canvas .
Marrinan studied art in London in the 1980s and has lived in several countries since leaving England in 1991. His works have included recycled copper sea and landscapes, works on linen, as well as redefined furniture pieces made from discarded old doors. "I have tried to always keep my paintings as simple as possible as to allow the observer to connect and explore it through their own imagination and hence enjoy the experience more"

"I have tried to always keep my paintings as simple as possible as to allow the observer to connect and explore it through their own imagination and hence enjoy the experience more" L S Lowry, who painted simple big industrial scenes in 1950s Birmingham, England using a very limited palette has had a great influence on my work as has Winslow Homer.
Marrinan has shown in several galleries and his works have been placed in several metropolitan cities included London, New York, Boston, San Fransisco and Paris
