Marianne Fox-OckingaArtist: Marianne Fox-Ockinga

Marianne became interested in the changing urban landscape in 2001 when her neighbourhood near London's King's Cross St Pancras underwent huge construction upheaval. Until then, her subjects were landscapes, often with people, in the Netherlands, England, Italy and France.

"The turning point came when I saw one of the huge iron gasometers being lifted by a crane to be taken away for demolition, and thought - this part of Victorian history should be recorded visually."

And record she has. Through the medium of woodcut and watercolour, Marianne captured the "death" and "resurrection" of some of London's most significant developments. One thing led to another — work at King's Cross St Pancras gave her the opportunity to record the abandonment of Highbury and the construction of Arsenal's elegant Emirates Stadium, followed by the Kings Place arts and media centre and the monumental Olympic Stadium at Stratford. Armed with a hard hat, she was a familiar figure at the Olympic site and her artwork follows the process of the stadium construction season by season over two years. Marianne was granted unprecedented access and became the first artist-in-residence of this extraordinary work-in-progress.

Marianne studied at the Bath Academy of Art, Corsham and the Rijksakademie in Amsterdam. Her work is in many private collections worldwide. She has exhibited regularly in England and the Netherlands including the Royal Academy, the Barbican and the Mall Gallery.
