Trained in Italy, Marianne Weil is internationally recognized for her abstract bronze sculpture. She is the recipient of numerous awards and grants and is represented by Art Sites Gallery in Riverhead and Kouros Gallery in New York City and Ridgefield CT.. Marianne teaches sculpture and is on the faculty of the City University of New York, College of Staten Island. Her work is included in many public and private collections both in the U.S. and abroad. Currently, she is preparing for her fourth solo exhibition at Kouros Gallery, opening September 16, 2010.

Over the past decade I have informally studied Megalithic centres and monuments in places like the Morbihan Penninsula in Brittany, New Grange and the Beaghmore Circles in Ireland, Skara Brae and the Ring of Brodgar on the Orkney Islands. The remote landscapes and rich dowry of these sites draw me into Neolithic culture. The finely carved inner walls of the Maltese Hypogeum, an underground vault-Like room, used for ceremonies and burial, as well as the pierced holes and spiral and oculi motifs of the giant stone at Knowth and Carrowmore filter into my work. Titles to my sculpture often evoke memories of these nysterious and compelling landscapes.
