Her work has been reviewed and is also in many private collections and included in texts and essays, including Six Stories from the End of Representation by James Elkins, published in 2008 by Stanford University Press. In the tradition of the still life, the artist takes the flowers she cuts from her garden as her subject. In her color-filled large paintings comprising thousands of single recurring marks, however, paint is not a vehicle she uses for depicting a sensorial, embodied impression of a flower, as many use in conventional still life pictures. This is because what she represents in her paintings is the flow of time through the flower. Marie keeps a cut flower for many years. She closely observes their course of life until death.
