Picking up from the vibrant colours of the African wax printed textile pasted onto board, Mark adds a mixture of paint and naturally sourced pigments. Each work is exquisite from a distance, and slowly forces you to pay attention to the detail. Contrasting the soft blend of colours and textures the artist uses brutal, crass and even messy mark making to depict the scene. Controversy clearly embedded in the scape serves as a metaphor for life past and present in South Africa.
