"Goodwill to All" 2006
Marcel has been doing calligraphy, and specifically Celtic styled illumination for over 15 years. The process for him involves exhaustive research within the texts he is illuminating, as well as on the art style as seen in the gospels of the dark ages, i.e. the Book of Kells.
The image above is the 2006 Christmas Card titled 'Goodwill to All'.
"The Lay of Amergin"
Above is a detail from the piece 'Lay of Mergin', which illuminates a quote by Thoreau. The full piece can be see on the print art page.
"Arthur 2" 2001
Another interest of Marcel's has been in Arthurian legend. After reading Geoffrey of Monmouth, Mallory and Tennyson - he found he was most interested in the early origins of the story and the likely sources for original plot. The subject still interests Mars and has spawned 3 of his larger art works: Arthur 1, Arthur 2 (detail shown above) and Excalibur. And there are still another one or two on the drawing board!
