“Within my work, I explore both surface and implied depth. Utilizing methods steeped in tradition, I manipulate space and form upon the canvas' two-dimensional surface. I combine these techniques alongside urban inspired media, such as spray paint, which, I acknowledge, as flat, color elements to complement the established depth and form. I am inspired by this duality of both technique and subject, as it parallels my life of tradition and the unconventional.
This past year, I have experienced both the loss of my father and becoming a father myself, this is the antithesis that has inspired and fueled my work as of late. Incorporating the use of mandalas, the Sanskrit word meaning, "circle" within the compositions; I utilize their revolving pattern of geometric elements, alongside organic components, such as floral and "graffiti-esque" markings to achieve my conceptual and aesthetic intent,” adds Marcus.
“Marcus has a very special way of blending texture and color on to a canvas. When observing his artwork, it is interesting to see the thoughtful way in which he balances the dramatic effect of chosen shapes on to a canvas, together with the visual depth created for each piece. His original technique stimulates an emotional sensibility for both the apparent beauty of the artwork and its touch of surrealism portrayed in the subject,” said Bernard Markowicz, Owner of Markowicz Fine Art.
Marcus' career has greatly grown throughout recent years. He has placed work in prominent collections throughout the U.S. as well as Europe- including celebrities and NBA stars. His work has been shown in museums across the country, including the Boca Raton Museum of Art's Annual Juried Competition Exhibition.
