“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.
