“My work is a journey into the fantastic realm of the imagination,” Marcus says, “where archetypal pareidolia is embedded into other worldly landscapes.”
He explains that apophenia is the experience of seeing patterns or connections in random data. Pareidolia – a form of apophenia – describes our tendency to see patterns in random data. Faces in clouds, for example.
The London-based artist looks for form in the “semi-random lines” he draws at the beginning of each piece – something that suggests likeness or environment. He continues fleshing out the drawing until he completes the web of intricate, interwoven images that's the hallmark of his art. Marcus recently exhibited his experiments in pareidolia at London’s West Bank Gallery.
