About Mark


I do not have the luxury of escape. In this century, in this moment, few of us do. Information piles up: the advertisements, the mechanisms, the media, the people. I am attached to it, in the midst of it, a part of it. However, as a painter, I am also a witness and a reactionary. My paintings are manifestations of the same barrage my friend shied away from. The paintings speak of information explosions, where an entire environment can be physically contained in a seamlessly presented two-dimensional world. It is a reaction to the age of technology we find ourselves living in. The way we look at, perceive, and process ideas has changed, and because of that, because of what the viewer brings to the experience, these painting could not have been created in any other time. This is not so much a comment on myself as it is the viewer. They now have the ability to take in numerous ideas and aesthetic techniques all at once as a consequence of their everyday lives. What I am doing is letting the ideas fall in a frozen plane, allowing for further investigation.

Extraordinary and imaginative. It provoked me to higher states of consciousness.

Thys is by far another of the most amazing peices of art work i have seen...keep up yur very well done work!

It grabs my attention to its unique detail and how everything is placed.

IN THE GRAYSCALE PAINTING I SEE A FACE...AND THE FACE IS IN PAIN... KIND OF SCREAMING FOR HELP...THAT HAS LOST THEIR VOICE ALONG THE HARD TECHNICAL WORLD....

Beautiful, like a silent scream.

Looks like angry Jackson Pollock.

Wonderful! You are pulled in and pushed out simultaneously. The intensity almost raises my pulse.

Nice, talk about an explosion.
