Marge Rendell (b. 1998) is a painter based in New York, NY. She received her BFA from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2020. Through labor, obsession, and rumination her work gives value to the disposable. Looking at systems of commodification she plays between the space of fine art and advertisement. Making overly attractive, desirable, and shiny objects that all fall into ideas of irony, self and world criticality, and identity, she forces her viewer to question society’s inherent identity as a consumer.
