Artist Statement:

I am a collector - a collector of stories, debris, and lost gestures. I grew up exploring mountain forests embedded with the residual traces of human presence. Found objects echo this scattered residue and function as conduits for narrative and gesture to surface. Through engaging in meditative and intuitive actions of making, I create inconclusive material assemblages, performances, and installations that question the permeability of structure and place.


I received my MFA from the University of Minnesota in 2018. Recently, I finished my first large scale outdoor sculpture titled, "I wish that mountains could move, too" at Franconia Sculpture Park where I was a Jerome Fellow. I have returned to nothern Idaho where I continue to explore the ephemeraility of place through the act of making. I can be reached through email at marclapointeart@gmail.com.
