The Haunting Exhibition Statement

Drawing upon various influences from Romanticism’s landscape painting to theology and contemplative silence, Logan Marconi’s oil paintings explore themes of existence and spirituality by revealing a haunting, numinous world. His most recent body of work focuses on death, faith, and ritual as mysterious forces that shape existence. More emotive than descriptive, Logan’s paintings bring to mind forgotten ceremonial grounds and seem to unearth a supernatural presence. His process is one of inquiry and reflection, resulting in a constant working out- an excavation- of what haunting presence he feels. For him, it is not enough to represent the world as it appears physically; instead, he strives to truthfully represent the world as it is felt. As a result, the paintings undergo numerous revisions so what is finally left bares some truthful resonance.
