ARTIST STATEMENT/MARK FLOWERS
I have always made use of painting to understand my relationship with the world. My works are stories - small insights and reflections of my experiences. In seeking meaning in the world, I am sharing my story in hopes of making common connections with others.
My work has many layers; formally, it is about shape, objective and non-objective imagery existing in the same field. The interaction of image, shape, and surface appeals to me. Conceptually, they are about telling small stories of insight. I see my work as visual poetry making sense of the world around me.
