Marc Standing Featured in GQ Magazine

"Viewed as a whole, The Whispering Tongues becomes a celebration and an exploration of Standing’s heritage and identity"

 

"Viewed as a whole, The Whispering Tongues becomes a celebration and an exploration of Standing’s heritage and identity, seen from his unique perspective as a gay, white African who was born to a Jewish mother before travelling and living all over the planet, from Hong Kong to Australia to Britain, where he now resides. He is unquestionably one of the most exciting contemporary artists working in London today and in this powerful and resonant exhibition he engages movingly with universal themes of identity, culture, heritage and the meaning of “home”."

 

"The work of Zimbabwe-born artist Marc Standing defies easy categorisation. His paintings harness abstraction, figuration and surrealism and never quite reveal all their secrets. They are enigmas that need to be seen – and felt – for oneself." - GQ
