Marshall paints the things he values; family connections, the individual’s dignity and worth and the rich history of African American culture. He has developed an expressionistic style using many materials, such a newspapers, and magazine cutouts, cardboard and other materials to create the image. He uses color, line, shapes, and symbols to create the subject matter to formulate his ideas. There are stylized people, men, women, children and other icons that he has created for his visual language. Marshall’s paintings seem very intuitive and at times naive, but with further viewing you will see power, mood, tranquility, peace, sorrow, sadness and so many other emotions that make the viewer engage.
