Bio

Marie Magnetic (b. 1989) is a Jewish, Indigenous (Blackfeet Nation), neurodivergent (ADHD), and queer artist focusing on neurodivergence, queer identity, feminist issues, discrimination, human rights, politics, and social commentary. Growing up in a small town in southwestern Michigan helped to shape her values as she witnessed friends and family experience addiction, mental health issues, poverty, and other forms of systemic disadvantage. Marie was awarded a Bachelor of Science in Psychology from Central Michigan University and originally worked in positions with child services, state government, and several library roles before returning to art during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Marie has exhibited in group shows at the Chicago Fine Art Salon, Woman Made Gallery, Fulton Street Collective, and a solo exhibit at Little Broken Things Hair Salon. Recently, she was the recipient of a Merit award from LightSpaceTime.art and an artist grant from the Haven Foundation. Marie currently resides in Chicago. She is dedicated to exploring culture and the multi-faceted realm of humanity through her art.

Artist Statement

I am inspired by my experiences as a Jewish, Indigenous (Blackfeet Nation), neurodivergent (ADHD), and queer woman as I examine dystopia, delight, and delusion in society. My artwork considers the experiences of being othered. In my work, I reflect on the mundane, the morose, and the magnificently mad.

Within my practice, I use a bit of dada, surrealism, and satire to engage my audience and play with color and form. I like to experiment with art. Painting, collage, and mixed media allow me to delve into a world where familiarity and the unknown merge.

Art is more than a means of expression for me- I use my creations to heal, connect with others, and grow. My Indigenous roots help to ground me as I explore the elements through art. My art allows me to think about the world differently, question societal norms, and consider a greater social consciousness.
