Jeffrey Maron (American, 1949 - )

  

Jeffrey Maron is an artist with a long history of exhibits in New York City and elsewhere. He is the recipient of three grants from the National Endowment for the Arts, as well as a Fulbright-Hayes Grant to Japan. In 1989, he was also awarded a grant from the Jackson Pollock/Lee Krasner Foundation. Maron's work is in many corporate, public and private collections. 

A two year Fulbright-Hayes Grant for sculpture allowed the artist to live and work in Japan, where he continued to be influenced by cultures of the world dedicated to animism, the worship of an inclusive natural order. "Cultures that see themselves as part of a greater order usually create compelling art to which we are all drawn. Their art exudes this metaphor, to which we are still fundamentally attached." JM  

Maron's art is often inspired by the artist's direct experience with non- Western cultures. His sculptures and paintings, in both large and small scale, have a spiritual and mystical quality that is linked to his investigations of Eastern and Native American cultures. Maron's art has a definite connection to our spiritual identity and is not directly derived from any of the main currents of contemporary art. His work is characterized by paradoxes. It is both tough and beautiful, religious and sensual, reminiscent of familiar symbols but clearly unique.  

Jeffrey Maron wants to create art that will remind people of their spiritual existence, "If I can create art that communicates this without words, then my art will become part of an ongoing transformative process ". JM   Maron recently completed "Spirits'Flight", a project devoted to assist the healing process at the new Hillman Cancer Center in Pittsburgh. "Along with the use of conventional therapies, healing involves overcoming fear and transforming one's energy. Art can be a catalyst for this".JM. The center will be the nation's largest cancer treatment and research facility and part of the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. Currently Maron is working on a new work for Grounds for Healing , part of the new Robert Wood Johnson Cancer Center, in Hamilton, New Jersey.
