Marcus Cain’s new series of paintings, Alignments, are inspired as reply to the constant stream of information experienced in our hyperactive world. Cain is interested in, what he calls,“ a territory between looking and seeing” and these paintings hasten to reflect and respond to our common experience of action and reaction. Employing the humblest of tools, Cain stamps the surface of his canvas with pieces of wood dipped in color. The repeated marks accumulate and reveal, or conceal, intervals of pattern that cluster together, and then break apart. Woven color divides space and suggests shadow and light, the movement, gravity and atmosphere of our world. Cain says of these paintings, “Collectively these works are meditations on personal and universal mythologies, acts of transformation and discovery and loss in the natural and man-made world.” Marcus Cain holds a B.F.A. from the Kansas City Art Institute where he is Alumni Director. His work is in the permanent collections of the Daum Museum of Contemporary Art, Sedalia, MO; Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art, Overland Park, KS, and numerous others.
