From the Retro Fantastico series, in which images from the good old days are set against the reality. Just a nice day at Bikini atoll during operation Crossroads. The models are set against the Baker atom bomb background, the second test at Bikini. The bomb was known as Helen of Bikini and was detonated 90 feet (27 m) underwater on July 25, 1946. Radioactive sea spray caused extensive contamination.

Born in Rotterdam in 1962, Marian Williams lives and works in France. Although art is all around within the family, Marian choses to take various detours in life to finally arrive at her true passion. After studying physical education and physiology she specialises in management of sport events. A career that continues after arriving in France in 1987, as managing director of a New York based design company. Her passion for art, graphics and images never left her and in 2010 she definitely turns towards collage, painting and sculpting. Since, her work has been on show in France, England, Italy, Albania, the Netherlands, Serbia and in the USA. Whilst recycling objects, authentic photos and original illustrations from vintage magazines and books, dating from 1900, she creates dynamic, striking and colourful analog compositions. The artist’s approach to collage is rich and large; from different angles, formats and styles; on paper, canvas, mosaics or as sculptures. The mixed media compositions are created with paper, ink, pastels, acrylic and oil paint. Printed material is cut, ripped or torn and sometimes used as ink transfers. The ‘recycle art’ sculptures are installations and compositions made out of vintage three dimensional elements. The works, influenced by pop art, surrealism and dadaism, show originality and freshness, in which classical art, retro chic, and kitsch are combined in a challenging way. The artist's political engagement for the environment, women's rights, freedom and social justice, are recurring themes. Her story telling is sincere, expressed in various ways, sometimes minimalist, sometimes complex. 'When I was five years old I jumped in a bin at school to save schoolbooks from the 1950's which had been thrown away. Everything about these book was precious to me; the images, the letter type, the torn pages, the colours and the memories. They reflected the history of daily life gone by. They were art to me. I believe art is to be found everywhere, and should be accessible to all. Collage for me it is the most enjoyable and accurate form of expression. It is story telling; transforming images that are charged with concepts and ideas into new compositions. I try to create harmony and movement in each work, playing with space, light, colour and a sense of humour. With my compositions I hope to make the viewers question what is normal and expected.
