Marcia Lippman is an artist, a teacher, a collector, a hoarder of beauty, a New Yorker, a Francophile, and a storyteller. The thread of her narrative over some 35 years of black & white and recent color work consists in the act of looking and stealing glimpses of timeless grandeur and small suspended moments, ~ moments of concentrated emotion which address the ephemeral nature of memory, desire, truth, fiction and above all, time. These pictorial fragments simultaneously evoke fragility, romance and mortality. They are familiar traces of beauty, traces of the past that have shaped and informed the present. Mementos, if you wish.
Marcia is represented by Nailya Alexander Gallery in NYC. Her previous one woman shows had been at KMR Arts, Washington Depot CT, Kopeikin Gallery,LA, Staley Wise Gallery,NYC . She was the recipient of a NYFA Grant and has two books, Sacred Encounters/East and West and West Point. Her work is in several collections; The Met, The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, The Avon Collection. Marcia currently teaches at The School of Visual Arts, in NY., and continues to travel to unknown lands.
