"Pieces created from stories and written information reveal themselves in close contact with my work, as personal stories held within us become visible only to those closer to us. I’m interested in exploring internal mind vs. external matter in my visual art narrative® work, influenced by writing and interviewing experience at Houston Press, CultureMap, and Houston Business Journal, plus a lifetime love of learning and the written word"
Marlo Saucedo grew up in Houston and left for a BA in Psychology from Davidson and an MBA from the University of Texas at Austin. For years she was lucky to be a student in scholarship classes at the Glassell Junior School’s scholarship classes here in Houston, but did not pursue art until her late-20s. Her visual art narrative® work evolved from a lifetime love of learning and research and the written word. Experience as a journalist with Houston Press, CultureMap, and Houston Business Journal led to skylines created from Houston’s history and architecture.
Her work uses stories and information as visual objects/subjects. Words are revealed in a closer look – as our personal stories held within become visible only to those close to us. Dual layers in her pieces represent the internal (mind) and the external (matter).
