I Blow My Horn, You Toot Yours, oil on linen.
Using titles with a sense of whimsy, such as “I Blow my Horn, You Toot Yours”, Marion Di Quinzio is leaving interpretation to the viewer. The shapes seen are unlike anything usually seen with the naked eye; they seem reminiscent of microscopic images. There is a peaceful quality with these paintings, beneath their brightness and strange shapes, like finding a silent sanctuary in the middle of a city.
