Marc Bardon is an untrained, multimedia artist living & working in Ithaca NY.
Marc's artistic influences are commonly social, reflecting both the shifting and sedentary characteristics of humanity in the abstract. His work also explores personal spaces, familial history and relationships.
In 2016, Marc's watercolor & ink piece, entitled 'Politic', was included in a show of small works at the Main Street Arts Gallery in Clifton Springs NY. His work can be found in private collections and sporadic public showings in the Ithaca area.
Marc's current series attempts to illustrate the formative moments and experiences of his childhood told through the faces and body language of the self and other persons.
These portraits are created by layering paper, paints, pastels, chalks & more. Building depth of color & texture allow Marc's figures to gain an individualized complexity, reflecting a physical singularity important in the definition of social differentiation.
Marc hopes his work will exist as an examination of the human condition, including concepts of judgement, decision, balance and substitution. The artist asks himself & the viewer, 'Are we so different? Are we so similar?'
