Although Adam Marnie started as a painter, he basically gave up on the medium when he enrolled at the Rhode Island School of Design and started to explore sculpture and collage work. After receiving a BFA (he later earned his MFA at Bard in 2011), Marnie moved to New York and started working with artists and galleries as an assistant and art handler. This transition exposed him to new materials and the encasing of objects, something that becomes evident in his crate- like installation pieces and his use of the gallery wall as a canvas or sculptural element.
