Associate Professor of Art, Printmaking
Professor Marshall teaches undergraduate and graduate courses in printmaking. Since joining the faculty in 2001, her work has been included in national and international printmaking exhibitions including: Global Matrix, 4th Minnesota National Print Biennial and 17th Parkside National Small Print Exhibition. Her work has been the subject of solo exhibitions in Alabama, Iowa, Pennsylvania and Maryland. In conjunction with her studio practice, Marshall has presented lectures and demonstrations at the College Art Association, the State University of West Georgia, West Virginia University and the University of North Alabama. She serves as Director of Graduate Studies for Studio Art.
Marshall is interested in how everyday experiences are constructed and recorded in the human mind. Her work explores the links between direct sensory encounters and a rich history of belief, imagination, and memory. Plant forms, animal forms and the figure reference the physical world. Manipulated words and letterforms, and references to language and translation suggest the complexities of human thought, learning and behavior. She often works with appropriated source imagery, cutting apart and recombining elements, and abstracting them through simplification, repetition, and layering. Her attraction to the multiple comes from the possibility of infinite variation as much as infinite repeatability, and a family of related images often replaces the edition in her studio practice.
