ANDREW MARCUS / Paintings Through Nov. 4th

My work, DISAPPEARANCE, is a transdisciplinary inquiry into dilemmas of being in time and space. In my paintings, such dilemmas play out as dramatic interactions, to be completed by a viewer’s conscious engagement. Paint and planar limits combine as the object of mediation. My erotic gesture, to play temporally with the moment or spatially at the edge of form as it arises and dissolves, may be framed as a question:  By what means does beauty attain primacy of place in the world?
