Always experimenting with new media, Paul Marquardt has produced digitally composed images, responsive installations and performance, as well as sculpture, drawing, photography, printmaking, and painting since the early eighties.
“Throughout my career I have created a significant body of work using new and traditional media, however, social dialogue has always remained a vital element in my work. Communicating with people of all ages, nationalities, and persuasions is my primary concern, using visual metaphor, surprising juxtapositions, and humor to comment on social issues. My attempt is to reach the pre-conscious mind where our ideas form, surfacing preconceptions for review and, perhaps, for change.”
