Michael Merck (b. 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa) My work is narrative-driven and rendered in readily accessible western symbolic terms – often times figurative – that welcome poetic reasoning, prolonged engagement, and multiple readings. I have a particular interest in material and its ability to transcend meaning as well as an affinity for language and its capacity to simultaneously convey concrete, aural, and visual information.

He lives and works in Queens.
