‘Awoken Magic’ 24×48 inches

With the use of painting and drawing techniques, Marco Coching examines the personal and universal exchanges found in abstract art through his works. The driving force behind his exhibit is an enduring interest in the human spirit, its emotional resonance, and the way it manifests in life.  Through expressive color, luminosity, and gestural mark marking, he successfully diverts painting from historical and hierarchical structures.

‘Feast of Passion’ 36×72 inches
‘Perpetual Luck’ 24×36 inches

Coching constantly analyzes the profusion of colors and textures in nature and the myriad qualities of light that can transform an ordinary scene into something luminous. Every piece depicts the beauty of light, from striking to subtle. The artist is drawn to patterns in nature, as well as the ways in which patterns coincide with each other. The notion of temporality is central in his process; documenting human connections, dialogues, and relationships as they morph over time.
