The Sixteen Trust (2/19)


Marc Standing’s sublime and iconic paintings have developed through his complex emotional and life experiences, with his work embodying his personal search for identity as well as the complexities felt by mass consciousness. Organic and anthropological in feel, Standing’s work is thematically inspired by the natural world, science and biology. References to microcosms, cell structures, and earthly composites abound and present the viewer with a fresh new perspective.

His work can be categorised as eerie yet peaceful, made up of the layering of textures and imagery designed to evoke a surreal clarity in the viewer. Marc Standing uses a palette and compositional platform mixed with sinister imagery in order to explore the tensions felt between light and dark; comfort and discomfort; a sense of belonging and a sense of void.

In his own words, Marc describes his work as “…using a lot of layering with the intention of barraging the viewer with a plethora of pictorial stimulus … storytelling and imagination fuse into a visual mirage of wonderment.”
