Welcome to Marque’s secret world…
At the core of Marque Todd’s work is a deep love and respect for all of animal kind and the sacred spiritual nature that we share with them. Many of Marque’s current paintings pay homage to Medieval and Renaissance art, architecture, and history where her animals, at times, seem to stand in for humanity.
Marque uses classical realism and allegory to remind viewers of the grandeur of the animal kingdom while challenging them to expand their perception of the natural order and to evoke a sense of yearning to visit places that seem real yet mysterious.
Marque’s style is defined by her attention to detail, creation of otherworldly yet accessible spaces, and perhaps most notably by her depiction of animals as noble spirit-filled creatures that have their own lives and secrets. She often incorporates elements of architecture and decorative elements into her compositions that can carry hidden symbolism or meaning.
