When Mark works, he lets his mind roam freely between his ancestors and his teachers. It evokes moments of communion with nature and seeks to leave something on the matter that’s translated into color and hidden messages.
Within his abstracts lie the symbolisms of the runes, Mark’s admiration for Joseph Beuys and dawns spent fishing not obvious to the naked eye. Aspects to be extracted by long observation and intuited through the whim and boldness of these objects.
This exhibition is an approach to the colored surfaces product of an intimate search for the origin and meaning of our existence here and now.
