Using graphite as his basic medium, James Marshall explores the physicality of drawing by making repeated gestures that bear witness to the artist’s intensive process of mark making. His goal, he says, “is to create works that are full of interpretive possibilities and layers of meaning.”
Marshall is a graduate of The American University in Washington, DC, and the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn. He is an accomplished sculptor, painter, and photographer residing in Brunswick, Maine. His work is in the collection of the Portland Museum of Art, as well as in many private collections. He has published several photography books and his recent exhibitions include the 2012 CMCA Biennial Exhibition and shows at ICON Contemporary Art, Brunswick.
