The work of Marci Gintis encompasses a wide range of ideas and techniques. Her current work on memory and loss includes cemetary landscapes from Budapest, where she resides part of the year; portraits of her family; and objects rediscovered when she closed her fatherís house.
"In my art, in painting what I feel compelled to paint, I am influenced by various contemporary intellectual disciplines: natural science, psychology, philosophy; and by the art and thought of the past. I picture everything, from insects and flowers to life size portraits, to human rights violations."
"Marci Gintis...sees (herself) as part of the long history of representation that stretches from the cave painters until now, using time-honored methods...(She) nevertheless produces works that unmistakably belong to the late twentieth century."
