Bio found on: www.marcellemurdock.com

Self taught artist from Montreal, currently based in NYC. Graduated with a Bachelors in Fine arts from the School Of Visual Arts, NY with honors, and also have a degree in photography. I took my previous bachelors degree in Sociology/Sexuality, which led me to adopt a different outlook on the realities of our society and on how we perceive sexuality, love and relationships. I am particularly interested in the powerful role that situation can play in human behavior. The imagery deals with power, both from socioeconomic and sexual standpoints, through symbols of wealth and decadent fetishism. My art is a savage indictment of our society, caught in the grip of commercialism, greed and superficiality. A black-hearted satire portraying how nobody pays attention to inhumane behavior when one is in a position where no one would suspect it. The imagery deals with power, both from socioeconomic and sexual standpoints, through symbols of wealth and decadent fetishism. My paintings are also about love, in a circuitous way. Focusing on taking control of one’s life, through dominant portraits, as a symbol of our personal struggle for power. Perhaps by pointing out its most extreme failures, I can paradoxically emphasize the possibility that society’s obsession with power can be overcome, and that we might find a way to love without inevitably reaching destruction. The imagery in my work has a nightmarish theme, as we all have an affinity towards the beautiful and the dreadful. My intention is to bring out the beautiful in the dreadful, and revel in the beauty of the grotesque. -M. Murdock​
