John Marc Anderson has been a fabricator, an
artist, a craftsman, and a designer for all of his
adult life. As CEO of one of the largest custom
bedding manufacturing companies in the United
States by day, his use of diverse materials has
always been a part of his life's work.
His art, however, is unique, powerful, soulful,
captivating, and otherwordly. Collectors of
Marc's work have described his art as "so
unique, you seek it out, waiting for the next
piece or idea that is going to be spawned,
because you must have it"...
Although a Washington, DC native, Marc has
lived in the New Orleans area for more than ten
years, and his immersion in New Orleans life and
environment is reflected in his subject matter,
almost exclusively bound to architectural
interpretations of the City's most iconic symbols
that New Orleans natives and visitors alike will
recognize and often revere.
Completely self taught as an artist, his use of
advanced technology, though not clearly visible in
his work, is ever present, along with practical use
of a variety of eclectic media, from vinyl spackling
to house paint, to wood stains, to acrylic, enamel,
and oil paints, even dental bonding compound.
Marc creates each piece, or component of a
montage piece, from his original scuptures,
almost always a wall mounted relief format. The
original sculptures are recorded using a laser
scanning system, and recreated in various sizes
using a high end 3-D printer, and he uses the
castings to create resin reproductions which are
integrated into each piece, and then embellished,
painted, stained, and "weathered" using
proprietary techniques that are purely Marc's
creations and formulas.
One of his perennial favorites by collectors is
Marc's iconic recreation of the classic New
Orlean's shotgun house, and a variety of both
monochromatic and color studies of these
beloved buildings are often a primary subject
matter found at shows and in galleries and
