This publication reproduces Calvin Marcus’s large paintings since 2018. Each painting attempts to achieve complete autonomy within its edges. Capturing dream-like visions and snapshots of the absurdity of contemporary life, they depict diverse subjects: animals, humanoid figures, interiors and landscape-like spaces. These singular representations share a sensibility, at once idiosyncratic and disarming, that immediately draws the viewer into the mysteries of the quotidian world. Each poses—with Marcus's humorous brand of surrealism—as many questions as answers.
