- Marcus Wills

Marcus Wills’ dramatic, figurative paintings are rendered with unnerving realism. Inspired by the exquisite beauty inherent in the muscular structure of the human form, Wills paints highly detailed and intimate portraits of bodies in motion and faces captured in moments of extraordinary expression. His potent large-scale paintings convey a sense of immense power and movement while his intimate small-scale works convey deep emotion. Passion, suffering and intense reflection are vividly evident on the faces of his subjects.
