You will find a common reassuring theme of dualism, the battle of good vs. evil and the relation of man and beast depicted throughout the body of my work.
I have focused on bringing expression through in my imagery to describe these things and to hopefully to trigger connection or personal memories of the viewer and collector with my work.
Cubism and primitivism have been my main focus points in my work. Abstracting reality and abstracting ideas, as great artists and founders of these techniques have believed in the past, to believe reality is exactly how we see it is absurd, and to find true abstraction of form is to find true humanity and expression.
I mostly work with painting on canvas or panel board, I also bring my ideas to paper with ink and watercolor as well as sculpture.
~ Within expression you see the truth inside the soul of Man Kind. ~ International Artist Mark M Mellon's art work dictates the expression of man and beast exploring our role and place in this universe. Taking inspiration from Primitive Art work and a various assortment of Modern Art, Mellon brings together a harmony of imagery styled in an abstract and surreal way. Working with paint, ink and sculpture, Mellon has created a world and environment that encourages viewers to enter and engage with the imagery and find meanings all their own. His Works are collected around the world, as well as, represented in Mexico exclusively by SoHo Galleries in Merida, Yucatan. Mellon has taken residence in Çanakkale, Turkey, ( A city that was once known as the ancient city of Troy), where he married his wife and are waiting to return to America together. Mellon works out of his home studio located near the City Center of Çanakkale.
