Review of "Farrago" exhibition at Equity Gallery, October 2020, by Elizabeth Johnson at deliciousline.org.

Excerpt: "Countering beauty with brawn, Gagnier's Air series, white cherishes subtle, chance paint on smeared, torn, or trampled paper shards – yes, messier is better."

Excerpt from essay by Michael Gormley, "Captivated by Collage", writing about "Farrago" exhibition at Equity Gallery, October, 2020.

"Marianne Gagnier is an alchemist—her collages hard won distillations of color, form and texture deployed in a Hofmann-esque triumph to compositional tension. Aptly titled “Repair Series”, Gagnier’s collage surfaces are battle fields; layers upon layers, torn and stacked, pasted and re-pasted and painted all over again. Their very making, the great effort to pull together opposing parts (however fractured) into a compelling and greater whole, embodies what collage does best and why it calls to us so loudly on this day."
