An exhibition commenting on how mobile technology, internet and instant messaging have influenced the new 'Me' generation and inspired self-questioning in ancient cultures. Mark Michael, recently named one of seven of the very best young artists in the world, says, "It's important for me not to censor my thoughts; I love the reactions and happenings that I see everywhere from books, movies, television, the bludgeoning of advertising and excessive fear from the media. The digital age seems to have isolated and insulated us, forcing us to change."
Mark aims to create work that has an aesthetic look of stark simplicity with a strong structural element. His latest work involves regimented and repetitive handwritten textual effects, printing digitally on canvas using the giclée process, adding acrylic brushwork.
