Marc Cote

The images that Marc Cote creates have their roots in snippets of stories that he culled from children's tales, myths and fables, novels from past and present and his own experiences. Character development-the quirkier, the better-has always fascinated him. He uses physiognomy(the face's clues that reveal temperament)and gesture (the body's signs that reveal intention) to depict characters in varying social stances.

He is interested in our secret, rarely revealed egos. Often in his prints, he trys to simultaneously show our inner feelings and the outer visages that reflect or shelter those emotions. He wants to capture the temporal nature of the person-confident, magnetic, animalistic, materialistic, downtrodden and giddy. He wants to show the objects of desire and describe the manner in which we seek them.
