About Marsha Glickman:
Educated as a clinician and IT professional, structure and methodical detail show in Ms. Glickman’s passion for deconstructing and reconfiguring found paper, paintings, book parts and other ephemera into meaningful works of art. She incorporates right and left brain messages in her pieces with the effusive use of color to provoke the viewer to see his or her personal story in the work.
Marsha Glickman is a visionary upcycle artist using only original found materials in her work. “There is great pleasure in giving disparate and discarded ephemera the opportunity for a new life; a new purpose and meaning when combined into a single construction. The complexity and hidden messages in my artistic creations reference concepts and/or historical instances influenced by life experiences: living and travelling internationally, family upbringing, thoughts on world events and scientific/technical education”.
“I collect ephemera. I sift through information and ideas. As I sift I sort and assemble the interesting bits; the bits that contradict the familiar, the easy and the comfortable. These bits become seeds which I tend by seeking context through deliberate research. A viable seed will root leading me along the path of hidden histories, connections and words that should not be forgotten. In sowing ideas, the past is to be faced and reckoned. Some history should never be repeated. “
