Aping traditional academic positions, Marrinon’s coquettish figures are subtly subversive. Their thick limbs and roughly fashioned poses evoke an awkward diffidence. Critic Robin McKenzie observes, ‘Marrinon’s figures seem acutely conscious of the fact that they are on display—self consciously striking poses, being sculptures.’
