Song, and its companion piece, Dance, were conceived as a diptych and painted to recreate the sultry and evocative atmosphere of Cuba in a bygone age. Marsha Hammel describes herself as an atavist, or one who returns to primitive form. In keeping with other early art forms, she strives to present her figures in simple, powerful terms with reductive backgrounds. Her first works were also completed exclusively in pastel or oil on paper and she filled hundreds of sketch books with great spontaneity.

This early training enhanced her skill as a draftsman and the sense of urgency and spontaneity and the use of vibrant colour which she cultivated are still the dominant characteristics of the work she creates today. Born in Florida in 1949, Marsha Hammel has lived in Panama, Italy, Germany and Canada. She has travelled the United States extensively, spending time in the west and north-east as well as in the sunbelt cities of Richmond and New Orleans. Since 1980 she has enjoyed artistic success and inspiration living and working in the southern part of the United States. Specialising in atmospheric paintings with a musical theme, her work has been selected by many musicians and performing art centres to appear on programmes and as cover art for music. She has received several prestigious awards and commissions and has held successful solo exhibitions in New York, Florida, North Carolina and London. Marsha Hammel pours all her energy into her art and she sells every piece she can produce.

Each print is hand numbered and accompanied by a certificate signed by the artist. The certificate is numbered to match the print.
