(Marcus Rose,2008)Bio:Marcus Andre Rose
Born into an inspired family (Ina Rose, his mother, is an artist),Marcus Rose combines artistic talents for both painting and jewellery design.
'The purpose of distortion in my works is an extension of the ideas of distorted space of M.C. Escher and Victor Vasarelly. The
spaces are otherwise literal in their interpretation.
All space is distorted, all time is distorted.
These techniques remind us of these facts
and are also a tool to direct the mind to an altered interpretation of reality.
Buildings describe the utilitarian intent and ambition of their inhabitants, providing historical, cultural and economic reflections.
Buildings are many things simultaneously:
utilitarian as refuges, creative expressions of architects, cultural reflections and historical markers, and more’
Exhibiting principally in the US, Australia andFrance, Marcus’ current work in inspired by his studies of urban landscape and sculptural forms. His ‘Metropolitan’ series features paintings that interpret building elevations and interior settings. The works examine the relationship between people
and their constructed environments. The era and location of the building expressed in the works vary considerably and include settings from Australia, the US, Italy, France, Russia and Japan.
