Melissa Marks '83 is a New York-based artist who describes “the drawn mark” as a “mutable abstraction, linear catalyst and fantasy instigator.” “Every drawing I make is a diagram of a core-shaking internal disruption, an interior landscape made visible, a picture of a self in a constant state of remaking.” In a 20-year project that has included drawing, painting, animation, wall-drawing and installation, Marks exploits the flexible structure of "serial context in collusion with the act of drawing" in order to explore ideas about character, performance, Pop, Nature, and Abstraction. The calligraphic gesture and deliberate line exercise an energetic form of visual self-talk, referencing sources as diverse as American comics, Contemporary Japanese Anime, High-Renaissance Fresco cycles, Van Gogh, Monet, Matthew Barney, Sol LeWitt, Edo-period woodcuts and Chinese scroll painting. Veering between the graphic extremes of full color and black & white, subjects include battle, paradise, water, transience and satisfaction.
Marks received her Bachelor of Arts from Wesleyan University and her Masters of Fine Arts from Yale University. Solo exhibitions include: Planthouse Gallery, NY; Bloomberg Space, London; Nicole Klagsbrun Gallery, NY; Aldrich Museum of Contemporary Art, CT and Joya: arte + ecología, Cortijada Los Gazquez, Spain.

Her work was also featured recently in "Here, There, and Everywhere," at the Riverfront Art Gallery in Yonkers, New York. Laurie studied medieval history and literature at Harvard. Her tapestries have given her a new outlet to explore medieval tapestry. Many of her collages borrow subject matter, color scheme, and even the idea of weaving from the Unicorn Tapestries at the Cloisters. Her interest in fairy tales, childhood innocence, time, and the juxtaposition of reality and fantasy also find their way into her work. She is also the author of two children's books, The Secrets of Ms. Snickle’s Class (Clarion, 2001) and Zoo School (Clarion, 2004), both fantastical stories based closely on her experience teaching third grade.
