“Lost in Hollywood” is Mark’s exclusive new body of work that focuses on the iconic movie genre.
It is an abstract take on the iconic Philadelphia steps scene that is full of textures that look great as a print but allow for intense embellishing. Through using the smoke-like textures to create the body it gives off this wonderful ghost-like quality that is perfect for my ‘Lost In Hollywood’ series where we consider the characters from the film that are left behind once the filming stops and the lights go out.
The USA flag has been depicted within the body and hints of the cityscape form the background. I wanted to do something that was really gritty where the smoke represents the downtown element and the bright lights of the arena and fame. This gritty, tough quality has been embraced on the frame itself through substantial customisation of the original wooden frame so that it becomes a genuine extension of the image that it holds within.
