About artist:

Eliot Markell was born in Boston, Massachusetts and studied fine arts at Empire State College, SUNY and Mark Hopkins College.

After studying with his mentor, Gandy Brodie at Gandy Brodie School of Fine Arts in Newfane, Vermont, Eliot then moved to Brooklyn where he has lived and made art for over 40 years, maintaining studios in Gowanus, Williamsburg and Bushwick.

He has also been a presence in the arts community of Northeast Harbor, Maine having shown his plein-air work for many years at Wingspread Gallery and other Maine coast galleries.

Eliot has also written art criticism and articles for his blog, White Elephant on Wheels, many appearing in Painter’s Table, a noted online daily art magazine and co-curated group shows. His artworks have appeared in numerous exhibitions in Manhattan, Brooklyn, Jersey City and other US cities.

About this collection of work:

Although my multimedia in-studio works respond to the natural world, they generate sensations emanating from the fluxing boundaries of representation and manifestation. Using poured plaster, powdered pigment, and found objects, I create tactile, 3D surfaces that embody a quirky ethos.

Nature’s influence establishes a foundation in my art practice.

A mesmerizing gaze can extend into more ethereal realms, bringing an esoteric recognition and awareness of an exalted catharsis.

I am constantly aware of the limitations of art to embody those heightened states, and anchor my work to a muscular, physical connection in the here and now.

We live in a gem-like, pearlescent universe, offering bountiful opportunities to appreciate the splendorous narrative of our movement through the cosmos.

My art is simply an ongoing diary of the journey, which is constantly humbled by the overwhelming bombardment of inspiring stimuli.

I believe artists need to sort through distracting noise of fashionable décor, and distill their most meaningful experiences into compositions that exemplify perceptual integrity and invention.
