Marcus Jefferies



Marcus Jefferies was born in Bristol, UK, and studied fine art at Wimbledon School of Art, London. He currently works and lives in Bristol and is based at Spike Island Studios. Jefferies maintains a diverse practice that incorporates model making techniques, painting, sculpture, installation and design. Each field of interest informs the other to create intertwining relationships. The built environment often forms a backdrop to his work where new narratives are made through the exploration of site, scale and memory.

Recent exhibitions include: The Kiosk Project: a collaboration with Colin Higginson for Art Weekender – Bristol & Bath (2015). Test Space Open (2014) Spike Island, selected by Ruth Claxton, Marie-Anne McQuade and Edwina Ashton. Perpetual City (2013) collaboration with Colin Higginson, commissioned by Spike Island for Spike Open. Sub Woofer with Ancient and Modern (2012) curated by Sacha Waldron, Spike Island.
