Artist & Designer Marcie Paper, on Making Murals from Daily Memories

By |2022-02-26T00:56:39+00:00December 7th, 2021|Design|

In a time of blandly Insta-generic wall art, Marcie Paper’s patterned murals buck the trend. The Hudson Valley painter layers and repeats abstract motifs—like delicate spindles and bulbous pear shapes—to mesmerizing effect, drawing inspiration from personal memories, vintage textiles, and her own small-scale paintings. The results are absorbing, highly detailed works of art that reveal themselves the longer one looks. Below, Paper discusses her relationship to memory and meaning, painting and patternmaking, form and function—and why she loves living upstate.

A literally perfect getaway for big groups, especially in summer, with a bonfire pit, outdoor charcoal BBQ, and a private pond.
