Marc Dominus 

In 2018, having waited until the age of 65, Marc Dominus transitioned a lifetime passion for painting into his full-time profession. Using pallet knives, spatulas, credit cards, and other found objects, he manipulates paints into layers of shape, color, and texture, with the aim of communicating the inspiration, joy, and energy he experiences when painting.
Marc’s work reflects his experimentation with the interplay of color on the shallow depth of the canvas, seek to convey the interconnected energy I observe in the world, and convey emotions which for me are not expressed with words.
