As of mid-2018, Marc has been working on an extended series of landscape paintings using the palette knife.
These artworks perform first and foremost as scenic views. Transporting narratives – idealized memories of places he has been. They are traditional works, firmly rooted in the desire to bring beautiful things into our daily lives.
Yet, on closer examination, these works’ narrative imagery dissolves into a miniature topography of abstract color; a second level of meaning hidden within the illusionary terrain. Entering this underlying abstraction, the actual location is left behind, freeing the mind to journey further.
