“Baby Here I Am ” by Marc Scheff
Brooklyn-based artist Marc Scheff is pleased to announce ‘Depth Charge’ a solo exhibition of his latest work presented by Haven Gallery, featuring fourteen multi-dimensional resin paintings that examine the intricate framewor k of identity, human nature, and sense of self. ‘Depth Charge’ will be on view May 19th through June 23rd 2018 at Haven Gallery in Northport, New York. An opening reception with the artist will be held on Saturday, May 19th from 6:00 – 8:00pm. This event is kindly sponsored by Babe Wine.
Anchored in figurative draughtsmanship, Scheff employs a complex layering process for each piece, incorporating poured resin, gold leaf, pencil and paint, offering viewers a literal window into the human psyche. His process aims to peel back the layers of an individual soul, revealing both the characteristics we want seen as well as the aspects we prefer to keep to ourselves. Accented by a palette of vibrant hues, Scheff’s subjects are juxtaposed among aqueous shapes and nebulous expressions, acting as extensions of ourselves, and alluding to the ever-evolving interplay between a person’s internal and external worlds.
Through the transformative cosmos of “Depth Change”, the artist delves deep into the internal world — its perceptions, desires, dreams, biases, comforts, sacred beliefs, deep-seated fears, old wounds, great loves — while examining how the reality of external factors can play into the decisions we make and the people we choose to become.
