Artist Statement

Marques Vickers’ Flamenco and Dancer images are a fifteen-year progressive synthesis of figurative action paintings featuring stunning and passionate transitional movement. The purpose of Vickers’ works is to express the profound emotion by the performer and sensed by the audience. This transference of energy elevates both dancer and spectator amidst a properly executed dance sequence.

His Figurative images are a seventeen-year examination about the power and force radiated behind the solitary individual and the personal search for meaning and definition. The intensity of each figure, often in a silhouette foreground with diverse color and textural backgrounds provokes the questioning and intensity necessary in understanding the deeper questions of existence and the soul.

Each figure becomes a reflective mirror of the viewers surveying their own interior shadow and placement within society. The figures demand multiple viewings by the spectator that over time reveal subtleties in form and composition instinctively deepening appreciation. The compositional depth of the figure evokes a sense of spirituality.

Vickers’ works have been exhibited internationally in art galleries, exhibitions and are part of numerous public and private collections. Praise for his work has come from diverse and numerous sources.

“Like snapshots in time the figures are captured either in contorted positions as they dance or while relaxing as they regain their strength. Yet, they all hold that spark of life that makes the difference in good work. Unquestionably these are living people, filled with energy and a real lust for life, even when in repose.” Décor and Style Magazine

"The finished works are not in themselves portraits of woman but rather symbolic representations of femininity. These women figures exude strength, whether its is exhibited in transitional dance movements or in a provocative straightforward look. They are not women to be exploited rather respected for the passionate depths they represent and exude." Contra Costa Times
