Melissa Marks describes “the drawn mark” as a “mutable abstraction, linear catalyst and fantasy instigator” “and says “every drawing I make is a spastic diagram of a core-shaking internal disruption, an interior landscape made visible, a picture of a self in a constant state of remaking.” Marks has held solo exhibitions at Bloomberg Space, London; Nicole Klagsbrun Gallery, New York; Aldrich Museum of Contemporary Art, Connecticut; and Joya: Arte + Ecología, Cortijada Los Gazquez, Spain. She received her MFA degree in Painting from the Yale School of Art and lives and works in New York, New York.
