Mark Chatterley

Statement

Everything is either moving toward or away from nothingness.

 

Life, death, creation and destruction this is the world I find myself in.

 

I want my art to echo these thoughts, everything in a state of flux, changing and reforming. A since of decay along with life. Nothing is permanent and nothing stays the same.

 

I also try to show thoughts and feelings of the human condition. Beauty in the malformed, acceptance of the inevitable.

 

I am doing work of our time for our time, even though I look to the past , the dead for inspiration.
