Evoking scenes of quiet wastelands, the characters of Mark’s paintings seem lost, cold and messy–contradicting the plain direct painting used throughout the works.
Through this opposition, ‘the figure against the world’ is in a battle that doesn’t seem to be happening – or is going to happen.
Caught it a moment of cold calculated thought.
It is killing itself over. It is forever thinking.
It misses the old days that it can’t even remember.
