The “Constructions” are miniature environments that blend the natural and the synthetic. They are richly decorated complex sculptural forms that reference landscape, plants, and man-made structures. They explore the interaction between modern technological society and nature through a Decorative Arts idiom.
Marc’s work is inspired by historical ceramics (utilitarian and architectural) and by an interest in plants, both in their natural state and the way in which they are interpreted as ornamentation. The industrial building turned artist-studios where he works provides a source of intriguing forms and shapes that insinuate themselves into the work. He thinks of the jumble of exposed plumbing, heating, and electrical conduits as a constructed garden or a kind of organism maintaining life in the building in the same way plants and ecosystems support our life on the planet.
He searches for a vocabulary of ornament, contemporary and personal, that addresses a need to see humanity as a part of the natural world and not in opposition to it.
