A native New Yorker and artist who works in painting, drawing, printmaking, and tattoo, Terry Marks has been affiliated with the international, ReModernist arts movement Stuckism since 2001, exhibiting with various configurations of the group on three continents, including the Liverpool Biennial, and in Tehran, Iran.
Her pictures are a surreal take on Magical Realism with an upside-down, perverse, logic, like in dreams. Both puzzling and believable, many of her elements are contradictory, specializing in the absurd, and in oddball eccentricities. The result is a slice of narrative taken from a longer story, a puzzle with almost all the pieces there.
After accidentally falling into a side career of acting, she can sometimes be spotted in films and television, and is a junior instructor at the NY School of T’ai Chi Chuan.
