A native of Louisiana, Marcus Kenney has lived and worked in Savannah, GA for twenty-five years. He has created a rich body of work for which he is well known that encompass highly detailed narrative collage paintings, extraordinary taxidermy creatures and assemblage sculptures, among other mediums. One of the threads throughout all his work is that it is entirely comprised of found objects. His gritty, story-emanating compositions have been referred to in the vein of the “Southern Gothic”, while his most recent sculptures employing neon lighting with the found objects brings to mind pop in some works and others have a slightly more minimalist approach.
Marcus Kenney (b. 1972) earned an M.F.A. from Savannah College of Art and Design in 1998. He has exhibited internationally in art fairs, galleries, institutions and museums including London, Montreal, Tel Aviv, Paris, New York and Miami among others. His bibliography includes Art in America, New American Painting, Artpapers, New York Times, Boston Globe, ArtVoices, Atlanta Journal Constitution, New York Art Magazine, and Art News.
