Painting is in Marcus' blood. Famous or notable paintings created by Marcus' ancestors can be found during each generation dating back to the founding of the United States. His work is a testament to the idea that some painters are born with a gift inspired by genetics. Marcus has a love for the painted image and a desire to share his vision. In this show, the New Americana project are painted from early and new historical photography. Marcus currently resides in Rice Lake, WI.

Artist Reception - Of the Earth: Paintings by Jessica Mongeon
The Local Store at Volume One World Headquarters, 205 N. Dewey Street, Eau Claire, WI 54703
This series of paintings focuses on symbiotic plants and fungi that grow in Northwest Wisconsin, taking them out of their original context and transforming them into a new landscape. Disorder and the inevitable breaking down of systems are properties of nature that lead to growth; likewise, my painting process is a form of controlled chaos. I apply acrylic with wide brushes, allowing pigments to pool, interact and solidify into a version of harmony.
