In "Blue Ice" repetitive flowers in a pattern narrative are recognizable as Mark Cherry's signature style. His bold strokes, vibrant color palettes, found materials, and symbology remind many of DuBuffet and Art Brut. Mark’s unconventional imprint, however, is his development over a career that spans decades of painting and artworks that are at once graphic and spontaneous.
Brooklyn-born, Mark tells us that he first realized art fed his soul when encountering the works at MoMA. His style developed into a representation of archetypal subconscious–universal, primal symbols and images, both collected memories and imagination. When asked, "What’s the most inspiring thing you’ve seen, read, watched or listened to recently?" Mark responded: Human Spirit.
