When painting or teaching, Mark focuses his efforts on distilling information and experience down to its most basic form. His paintings, using acrylic or oil paint, focus on using abstract geometric shapes to eliminate the unnecessary and create the most powerful impact. Whether painting natural landscapes or busy city blocks, Mark’s work continues to chase the ideal of, as he describes it, the “contemporary sublime.”
Mark also brings his desire for simplicity to his workshops, compressing complicated information into easy to understand concepts. In his workshops, he teaches students to blend old techniques with new skills in order to create inspiring and unexpected results.
