Marcellux transforms basic shapes and colors into powerful compositions that depict light, shape, power and mechanized form.
The disparate parts f Marcellux's work are suspended between ground and foreground. His subject matter seems vague, but familiar at the same time. The iconography is reminiscent of primitive, or ancient markings, yet seen through the scope of a surrealist lens. But the work feels contemporary, with a reductive palette that places the work in its own realm.
Marcellux's work seems to speak about enlightenment through an aesthetic experience. His forms are elemental and mystical. They transcend cultural signification to speak about a broad visual experience.
The conception of light as a form is particularly innovative. Marcellux's representations of light are ambiguous and usually objectified rather than reflected. In addition, he uses negative space to show the absence of form and light.
