Marcia Wise’s paintings of abstracted landscapes, as well as her more abstract pieces, evoke the powerful emotional reactions that aspects of nature stir within her. She describes her work as honest peeks into her inner relationship with the world. Her process is a passionate trial of color placement, color relationships, light effects, introspection, form and pattern manipulation, and textural play.
Wise received formal training from L’Ecole Nationale Superieure Des Beaux-Arts, France, Art Institute of Boston, MA, and Boston University, MA. She has lived and worked across the US, in Europe and the Middle East. In addition to teaching private students and small groups, she continues to facilitate “The Bold Palette – Painting Workshops” in the US and abroad, taking groups of painters to Italy each year. Having concentrated on murals and trompe l’oeil painting in her earlier career, Wise’s oil paintings are now distinguished in such exhibitions as with the San Francisco Art Show, CA, Lincoln Center Art Show, gallery exhibitions in California, Delaware, Santa Fe, NM, and University of Massachusetts, Amherst, MA. She lives and works from her studio in Norfolk, MA, and in her Boston studio at 450 Harrison Avenue, Studio #403, Boston, MA.
Exhibitions in 2018 include a group show, “Thrive,” at Fountain Street gallery, 460C Harrison Ave, Boston, MA 1/31/18 to 2/25/18, and a solo exhibit at Fountain Street gallery 10/31/18 to 11/25/18.
