Marcus Pierce



American b. 1980   —   Marcus Pierce has worked over fifteen years creating both public and studio figurative art. Early in his career he worked as a professional muralist, designer and sign painter. He has won numerous city and nationally funded grants for his public artworks including grants from NEA, NYCDOT, and ISCP.Primarily an oil and acrylic painter, his working process stems from classical painting, using indirect layered glazes. He combines this with modified sign-painting techniques and materials. Much of his inspiration comes from introspection, but he is equally inspired by forefronts of scientific thought, such as cognitive science, consciousness and complexity theory. His current series “Strange Loop Tondos” uses familiar objects imbued with paradoxical attributes as analogies to structures of consciousness. He focuses on bringing to viewers an avenue of understanding seemingly elusive scientific concepts, by creating works that connect with fundamental human emotional responses.
