Los Angeles, CA | Mixed Media
MRSN. is a mixed media artist currently based in Los Angeles. MRSN creates gestural figure works that distort and reimagine the human body in space.
My technique is wildly gestural and I work from my imagination without references. I spent years of my life drawing and redrawing pages from George Bridgman books and it had a profound impact on my style; the way figures shape negative space, jutting out or fading into the background. I constantly refer to people, places and things I’ve seen as I add and subtract layers, I am always reforming the composition. When I start out on a piece I never know exactly what direction I am going, I don’t sketch out ideas but I push myself layer after layer to find that click in my head – – when I realize something divine through a sort of ugly distortion. I only have one rule when I work: that there will always be depth – both in the content and the meaning.
