Artwork Description: Original Abstractive/Figurative Nature Painting entitled “Foret Noir" (French Translation for Black Forest), acrylic on canvas, created by northern California artist Marques Vickers in 2013. The dimensions are 43x35”.
Marques Vickers’ Abstractive Nature images are a five-year painting examination removing himself entirely apart from his traditional figurative images.
Color depth and layered texture distinguish Vickers works. Each canvas displays a concise symmetry between painting and a layered effect of pure expression and embedded color. The works demand repetitive and studied viewing to analyze what the eye innately perceived.
The work is an attempt to manipulate the medium to acquire the subtle equilibrium embedded seamlessly within nature.
Vickers’ works have been exhibited internationally in art galleries, exhibitions and are part of numerous public and private collections.
