My Life as an Atom: Recent Paintings by John Marksbury

Opening Reception: Thursday, September 13, 5-8pm

John Marksbury is a St. Louis-based artist and designer who relocated from Boston, MA, in early 2013. Developed through an intuitive process of layering and expressive mark marking, John’s colorful paintings explore ideas of time and space, the fantastic and mystical, symbolism, and the tension between objective and subjective experience.

John has found a supportive home in the local arts community, exhibiting work at Art Saint Louis and most recently at Saint Charles Community College’s biannual painting invitational. He is honored and excited to have first solo exhibition at Houska Gallery.

Exhibition runs through October 13th, with a closing reception Saturday, October 13, 1-4pm

Curated by Jessica Mannisi, independent curator
