Marie-Claude Marquis Studio Tour in Preparation for “Don’t Use Me, I’m Broken’

Marie-Claude Marquis – Don’t Use Me, I’m Broken | July 25, 2020 – August 15, 2020

The inspiration behind the exhibition: In ‘Don’t use me, I’m broken’, I basically wanted to talk about the flaws, fails, and challenges, unique to each individual, that make us interesting and complex beings. But since this exhibition was mainly created during the pandemic, it took a darker turn than my usual work. Before this period, some of us had the opportunity to avoid facing problems, consciously or not, by loading our lives with work, obligations and activities. But because the recent confinement had a mirror effect on ourselves, it forced us to confront our darker facets and our relationship issues and I wanted to address that with the show. It will, therefore, be a mix of reflections, overflow, fears, hope, humor, and once again an attempt to encourage the spectator to express his feelings and to free himself from a weight that a person is often unconscious of carrying.

Max Sansing – Lost & Found

The inspiration behind the exhibition: Lost & Found has been a titled I’ve used to describe a series of works I’ve been doing for years in which the subject or subject of the work are caught in a moment of great transition in their lives. I’ve had moments in my life where I believed I was at an all-time low and it became a flash-point for change that made me who I am today. The key symbolism is just a totem of sorts to remind yourself that you have the power to find a door to a goal that may have been lost to you.

Marie-Claude Marquis’s – Don’t Use Me, I’m Broken

The inspiration behind the exhibition: In ‘Don’t use me, I’m broken’, I basically wanted to talk about the flaws, fails, and challenges, unique to each individual, that make us interesting and complex beings. But since this exhibition was mainly created during the pandemic, it took a darker turn than my usual work.

It will therefore be a mix of reflections, overflow, fears, hope, humor and once again an attempt to encourage the spectator to express his feelings and to free himself from a weight that a person is often unconscious of carrying.

Brian “Dovie” Golden – Warning Signs

The inspiration behind the exhibition: My latest body of work focuses on the “fiends” and the idea of these characters as hazard signs. Imagine if we could see those caution signs (similar to road signs) in the people or those decisions we inevitably regret.  Most of the dangers that surround us are invisible so my current work invites us to consider how we experience the sensation of intuition. What does it look like when we sense danger and deception, and how does this lend us insight into our surroundings and foresight into the road ahead?

Anthony Hurd – Current Mood

The inspiration behind the exhibition: Ever since November of 2016 I’d started doing these portrayed studies and sketches off and on. I went into a major depression after the election like half this country did. I watched the entire lgbtqai+ community cringe in fear. My BIPOC friends were too. It’s just been this building of tension, frustration, and anger ever since.

I started this show pre-covid 19 crash. Based on the chaos of the world around me. The apathy, the anger, the unapologetic narcissism, the pain and struggle, the peaks of joy and boundless love, the layers upon layers humanity building. I wanted to capture moods and moments, mostly of myself and friends. Then COVID hit, the uprising of the Black Lives Matter movement, the shit hit the fan and things just kept evolving. The body of work just kept feeling more and more relevant so I kept going with it and here we are.
