Ephemeral Panic by Marcus McDonald

Plush demons, sex dolls with skin, a real insane clown posse, messengers from another realm. Marcus McDonald's Ephemeral Panic, in reference to Alejandro Jodorowsky's transformative methodology in theater and performance, would be best described as a window into the internal mystery of his subjects' selves. Bringing his simultaneously traumatized and jaded New York evocation to the west coast for the first time, he attempts to capture various artists in the process of losing themselves to their pure personas. Part mystic-vision, part clown-art, his still and moving images of these panic characters invite the viewer to assume the role of dream analyst and to enter into the space in which our subconscious thrives.

About Marcus McDonald:

Marcus McDonald is a New York City based photographer and filmmaker who's interest lies in normalizing the psychedelic and disturbing. Informed by spiritual surrealism and daytime television, he hopes to channel the transmissions of the meditative realms that span realities and visit us in our subconscious. In an ideal world, his work would be hotel wall art, though perhaps it would look good in an elevator as well.
