QUADRATIC SERIES—PAINTING WITH LIQUID LIGHT
My Quadratic Series came out of a spur-of-the-moment experiment as I started blending “strokes of light” and examining the rich glow and color shifts I was creating. On the bright screen of the iPad Pro, I create with liquid light. It is something new. I feel I have jumped into a new world with both feet and it has enveloped me. I have surrendered to its gravitational pull. My Quadratic Series embodies that in such a huge way. I felt I had turned a corner into a new world the day I hit on this. That “discovery” part of being an artist is why I do what I do. The exploration is so unknown and so fulfilling.
“I have been following Mark’s creative journey for over a year now – his work never ceases to amaze me as he continues to evolve. I have two pieces from one series and the colors blend perfectly with the decor of the room they grace.” —Heather / Santa Fe
VERTICALITY SERIES—PURE GESTURALISM
My Verticality Series uses exuberant painted gestures and various drawing and scribing tools to create a sense of upward movement, a breaking away. These gesturalist works represent a new chapter for me in the form of a combination painting /drawing that incorporates vertical script letterforms. These works are vigorous or subtle depending on my frame-of-mind.
“The first time I saw Mark’s work, I was immediately drawn to interplay between color, texture, design, and emotion. I experience his art as both language and dance.” — Debbie / Santa Fe
AVENIDA SERIES—UNDERWATER / OVERWATER THEME RETURNS
Although I started the Avenida Series from a pure, non-objective, and experimental standpoint using elliptical movement to establish an abstract painting vocabulary, these triptychs evoked the undulating kelp beds of the Monterey coast of California for me. Maybe because I grew up in Minnesota, land of 10,000 lakes, themes of water or of being underwater show up occasionally in my work. What I particularly like about this series, and working electronically, is how I can bring a color into the physical iPad frame from outside it and blend paint in new and unexpected ways. Wearing the hat of an experimentalist is so much a part of what I enjoy about this medium and it makes me feel like a kid again splashing in uncharted waters—pun intended.
“Working with Mark has been an immensely rewarding partnership marked by collaboration — from picking the ideal piece, to matting, framing and hanging.” — Howard / Santa Fe
