Marcus McClure

Marcus McClure’s (b. 1984) art practice is motivated by the physical act of creation. And, if it were possible, this process would be endless, like the circles he repetitiously depicts. Since joining the Creativity Explored Studio in 2006, McClure has been unstoppable, working swiftly on multiple projects at once and discovering new ways to create interplay between different mediums and colors.

The thick layers of acrylic paint McClure spontaneously applies to his works accumulate to form a history of his creation. The narration relays a thoughtful process of mark making, contemplating, and marking again. Rendered in confidant strokes, McClure’s resulting circles, triangles, squares, and lines form rhythmic compositions that portray a great sense of depth and complexity.

CB2 selected McClure’s paintings as the basis for two rug designs; a perfect pairing, because McClure would like nothing better than to see a house completely covered in his outpouring of geometric shapes.
