White Owl, 24″ x 24″
Marcus Cain’s exhibit Soft Bones at Sherry Leedy Gallery in Kansas City until August 16, 2009. From Cain’s artist statement: “A cloaked and camouflaged figure, a beast whose feet no longer touch the ground, celestial parasitic twins and other images are gradually coaxed from floating and colliding pools of paint. As their forms suggest, their bones are soft and pliable or missing altogether amidst environments of drifting color and fog. These environments play host to a narrative of process, while bubbling up from their depths are ruminations on vulnerability, the gain and loss of shifting identity, and things often mentioned yet seldom seen.”
All works are from 2009 and described as acrylic, graphite, ink, latex and watercolor on wood panel.
