artist profile: marcus mcclure

In partnership with San Francisco’s Creativity Explored—a nonprofit visual arts center where artists with develop­mental disabilities create, exhibit and sell art—Marcus McClure’s two-dimensional artwork is reinterpreted as a hand-tufted wool rug.

Marcus was born in 1984 and has been a studio artist at Creativity Explored since 2006. Motivated by the physical process within the process of creating his works, he starts with geometric drawings and builds layer upon layer of thick acrylics.

For his abstract works, he usually prefers earthy, muted palettes from burnt oranges to olive greens—which work incredibly well on the watermarks rug over a sea of vibrant blue and turquoise.
