About

Love Letter No. 6 2018 India ink on paper *More Love Letters available upon request One of the most gifted colorists working today, Marks captures the contours and moods of her everyday surroundings using an unapologetically vivid palette. This Recollection Series belongs to the exhibition, "Barbara Marks: The Paintings," which exemplifies the artist's aptitude for creating space with color in her abstracted still lifes, interiors and landscapes. Barbara Marks is a multidisciplinary artist based in Connecticut. She is known for her smallish, square, colorful, paintings that are semi-abstract in nature—suggesting interior spaces, landscapes, and objects. Her work calls attention to the commonplace and the local. A child of the sixties, Marks grew up in Westport, Connecticut. She attended college, studying anthropology, until she fell into graphic design. In 1978, she established her own studio specializing in book design. In 2001, she left that behind to study painting at Lyme Academy College of Fine Arts, earning a BFA (2005) followed by an MFA from Brooklyn College CUNY (2008). Since then, Marks has been awarded artist residencies in Italy, France, and across the United States and she has shown her work throughout the Northeast.
