This artwork is typical of Marjorie Stark's abstract approach to representing forms. The piece comprises of a main blue gouache wash, overlaid with a vibrant yellow. The yellow paint appears to have been splattered and flicked across the piece, which may translate to the title of the artwork constellation.

We can imagine from the title of the piece, 'Constellation', that this was her inspiration. Analysing other works by Marjorie, we can see she is greatly inspired by architectural themes.

Marjorie Stark was born in 1914 and studied at Edinburgh College of Art from 1949 to 1955. She was as elected a professional member of the Society of Scottish Artists. Her work often combines fragments and impressions of her subject through the medium of watercolour and collage. She developed a distinctive style using torn paper and mixed media, and had a particular interest in exploring architecture.
