Dovber Marchette is a male artist born in United States, currently working in United States.

I learned from my mentor, David Smith, the abstract expressionist sculptor, and from the Modernist movement, to work, to be true to yourself, to know your craft well, to keep moving from level to level, and to be belligerent about the right things. I am belligerent about purity – about seeing without imposing and about allowing the art object to reveal itself. After more than forty five years of learning, teaching, and making art, I approach my work with as open a mind as possible and strive to detach myself from preconceived notions about what my sculpture or painting is supposed to become. For me, there is no original meaning or form. The final work is revealed through the process of creating. My role is to make very deliberate decisions about color, shape, and material and to keep working. Each new decision directs the path that the object will take. For me, ultimately the job of the artist is to be prepared – to be aware of his unique response to stimuli and of the choices available, and to make decisions without aesthetic judgment.
In order to make decisions without judgment, I preset specific boundaries to limit options. My work is shaped by the materials I use, by the space in which I work, and by the experiences, both real and imagined, that pop up during the construction of the object. to which I added personal objects and acrylic paint. I often make the parts of my work as separate units and then arrange them into a unified form in order to free the object from its own boundaries. During the past ten years, I have also produced more than two hundred paintings on paper, wood, and canvas. While I limit my color palette to only five colors, the potential within these five choices is infinite. Similarly, since I do not force my interpretation onto the art object, the viewer is free to comprehend the object in limitless ways.
