Linger here

Linger Here

Piece description from the artist

"LINGER HERE" is part of a larger series of works I created in the late Spring of 2012, where the works' objectives revolved largely around the materials, becoming more familiar with oil mediums and applying that familiarity to working on the then-familiar wood panels seen in other works of the same period. Conceptually, the work involves referring to larger, general ideas of the aimlessness and confused ambition typical for an American post-grad generation living in the in-between of higher education and regular or – as is more often the case, totally irregular, working life. The inspiration for the work is drawn most notably from my own experiences of moving from place to place and coping with the anxiousness of waiting for various personal plans to become realized.

About Andrew Marathas

Brighton, MA

Originally from southern Massachusetts, Andrew has been painting and drawing since an early age. In 2003, he started classes at Montserrat College of Art in Beverly, MA, following a path of various studio and design classes that would eventually lead him to graduating in May of 2007 with a degree in Illustration. Since then, he has been in various shows in and around the Boston area that include select pieces from both his professional and personal work.

His work, mainly on found pieces of wood – often dilapidated or reclaimed – depicts the world around us through bright colors, sharp metaphor, and a curious kind of humor that often finds itself pleasantly tongue in cheek or altogether mysterious. Often shown with the idea of it all being an ongoing series with intrinsic similarities and shared symbolism, there is to be found in the work an implied narrative running through most of the
work that makes either subtle or severe nods to personal endeavors, world issues, and classic themes.
