Marion Peck is an American artist known for her pop surrealist universe. Together with her husband Mark Ryden, they have been named the Queen and King of Pop Surrealism. Dealing with dreams, nightmares and the subconscious, Peck sources inspiration from mythological references and Lewis Carrol’s fantastical world. The eccentric and strange creatures that inhabit the artist’s particular world, existing in a Disney’s alternative macabre realm, demand affection and attention. Behind Peck’s emblematic surreal aesthetic hides an emotionally realistic nature. Her pieces are complex and cryptic, not evident at first-sight, like the resurfaced dreams that were buried deep down our unconsciousness. With two recent solo exhibitions in Shanghai and Los Angeles, Marion is an important artistic figure in the contemporary scene.
Little Clown is part of the artist’s most acclaimed and all-time favorite series of works featuring clowns. As Marion has largely stated, clowns ‘are disturbing, like strange spirits, mysterious characters emerging from the depths of the psyche, which is why many people fear them. Clowns convey pure emotion. It can be very cathartic to paint them’.
