Mario Hugo Gonzalez
A kitten (or baby tiger) batting at a leaf. Practicing to kill. A little girl holding and scolding babies in grocery store checkout lanes. Reading nutrition facts. For future reference. Some scenarios may seem innocent enough, but upon closer inspection unmistakable sadness becomes apparent. (However expected or accepted it may be.) Through drawing Marie explores the relationship between humor and the uncanny. Marie creates familiar yet disturbing scenes, sometime involving violence, usually evoking pathos. Characters appear and reappear. Never learning lessons. Marie was born in Grand Rapids, Michigan. She received her BFA from the Maryland Institute College of Art and her MFA from the Cranbrook Academy of Art. Marie currently resides in Minneapolis, Minnesota where she draws and sews and writes and dances. On rooftops.
