Working in many mediums including collage, sculpture, paint, photography, and installation, Marcus Kenney credits his aesthetic development to his hero, Robert Rauschenberg. When viewing Marcus' wall and floor works, there is a strong nod to Rauschenberg's Combines, as both artists merge non-traditional materials to form works of art with definitive narratives. Specifically for Marcus, each work is also an extension of himself as he uses his rural-southern upbringing for inspiration, themes, and found objects. Assemblages and collages of deer heads, sequins, beads, lace, leather, pins, buttons, amongst other everyday objects come together via glue, sewing, and nails forming frightful and fanciful works of Southern Gothic, folk art that are completely of his fertile imagination. .

Marcus Kenney’s (b. 1972) mixed media paintings and sculptures with found objects are well known and critically acclaimed. His masterful practice of the techniques of collage and assemblage are hallmarks of his oeuvre. Kenney’s narrative works present a tumultuous clash of imagery reflecting America’s melting pot of culture and considering issues including consumerism, environmentalism, religion, mortality, identity, race relations and authority.
Marcus was born and raised in rural Louisiana and currently lives and works in Savannah, GA. He earned an MFA from Savannah College of Art and Design in 1998. Kenney has had solo museum exhibitions at the Jepson Center at the Telfair Museum in Savannah, the Columbus Museum of Art, Columbus, GA, and the Masur Museum of Art, Monroe, LA. Two person and group exhibitions include MOCA GA, Atlanta, GA, and museums, institutions, galleries and art fairs internationally, including Israel, Paris, London, Montreal, New York, Boston, Chicago, Kansas City, St Louis, Minneapolis, Miami, Portland and New Orleans. Kenney was also featured in the 2004 New American Paintings Southern Edition. Earlier activity includes inclusion in the Georgia Triennial 2003 and 2002 (a traveling exhibition highlighting a select number of Georgia artists), as well as the exhibition “Georgia Seven” at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Atlanta, GA, 2004, curated by Radcliffe Bailey. His bibliography includes Art in America, Art News, Oxford American, The New York Sun, The Boston Globe, Art Papers, New American Paintings, South Magazine, and National Public Radio, among others.
