Biography from Gallery C:
Marcus Reichert (1948 - )

A painter and a poet, like Antonin Artaud and Jean Cocteau before him, he  knows no boundaries.  He was given his first exhibition of paintings at the age of twenty-one at the legendary Gotham Book Mart and Art Gallery, New York, home to the Surrealists during WWII.  In 1990, he was honored with a retrospective organized by the Hatton Gallery of the University of Newcastle which toured in various forms to Glasgow, London, Paris, and the United States.  His Crucifixion paintings have been described by Richard Harries, the Bishop of Oxford (England), as being among the most disturbing painted in the 20th Century, while the American critic Donald Kuspit has written that both Picasso's and Bacon's pale in comparison.

The first neo-noir, Reichert's film UNION CITY, which premiered at the 1980 Cannes Film Festival, was hailed by Lawrence O'Toole, film critic for Time Magazine, as "an unqualified masterpiece."  His film works are held in the Archive of the Museum of Modern Art, New York.  He is the author of three novels, including the cult classic Verdon Angster, and his writing has been featured internationally in numerous journals and collections.  Reichert: The Human Edifice by Mel Gooding, with 100 photographs by the artist in colour, is published by Artmedia Press, London. Displaced Person: Poetry, Pornography & Politics (Selected Writings 1970-2005) and Art & Ego: Marcus Reichert in Conversation with Edward Rozzo are published by Ziggurat Books, London.

Marcus Reichert lives and works in the south of France.
