Artist: Richard Marquis

  • Artist Statement:

    “Then and Now” is an examination of some of my early work compared with recent work.  I had never liked looking at my old work, but as I reached a certain age I came to appreciate and re-examine some of the pieces I made decades ago.  I perused my old sketchbooks and catalogues.  There were pieces I’d made that I couldn’t make today due to various reasons . . . (mostly a short little span of attention).  I found abandoned projects that I felt should be resurrected.  I found ideas I still wanted to explore.  Thomas Wolfe said “You can’t go home again.”  But I thought I could go to my glass shop again.  Why not?  It’s only 30 yards away.
