Last weekend, we went to Jacksonville, FL, at the invitation of Park West Gallery, an art dealer from whom we’ve bought pieces from on cruises. They put us up at the Jacksonville Hyatt Riverfront for two nights and wined and dined us…all just to attend two art auctions.
The featured guest artist was Marcus Glenn. From the Park West web site:
Marcus is known for his use of vibrant colors, his expressive use of exotic papers and fabrics, and his ability to create a masterful textured collage effect. His figures are animated and mannerist in approach, often stretching and twisting into impossible but highly expressive positions. He also has created a unique form of combining painting with sculpture to create a bas-relief effect. He has called this approach ‘Flat Life’ and has been developing the approach for more than a decade.
He’s a very personable guy, great artist, and we couldn’t resist buying one of his pieces. Isn’t it cool? You can click on the images to make them larger.
