The images in my work draw on both art historical references and the day-to-day world around me.
I attempt to bring together a synthesis of the recognizable and the abstracted so that the end result contains echoes of the familiar, but that ultimately the sources cannot be pinned down too easily. This approach gives me the flexibility to work with both image and surface without being overly indebted to either one, thus keeping my options open longer.
I grew up on the prairie and as I worked on the painting, it became somewhat autobiographical. Hence the title.
My name is Mark Grim . I am a Vango artist. Thank you for visiting my portfolio.
