Marcy Sperry’s beadwork involves a disciplined process that seeks to fill up or reinvent a space with a series of tiny marks, gestures, or improvised patterns in rich, vibrant colors. The time consuming and repetitive process of beading suggests an attempt to achieve a state of transcendence or meditation where one can escape into reflection or fantasy.
Sperry’s work has been exhibited throughout New York City at the Governors Island Art Fair, the Painting Center, the World Financial Center, and 440 Gallery. She has also exhibited at Northwestern University, Pittsburgh Center for the Arts, and the Bridge Art Fair in Miami, Florida.
