Assemblage Sculpture Art
10 1/2 x 11 x 6 inches
The metaphor of our soiled American flag going through the wringer
dramatizes the often sorry state of current events. Hope, fortunately,
always springs eternal as evidenced by the little girl dressed in white
sitting atop. The sculpture is an assemblage of an early 1900 salesman's
sample laundry ringer, an early small American flag and lead figure little
girl. The sculpture rests upon a vintage book of American history.
Artist Statement and Biography
After a career in advertising (formerly CEO of Cincinnati-based Northlich), Mark's love for great design, primitive antiques and unusual found objects all converged to form his creation of assemblages.
"Some works convey a message, some an outgrowth of a personal story, some a flight of fantasy and others are simply compositions that just look and feel right. Each one has been put through the torture test of long stares. My work aims to give very special found objects a new life and context."
A collection of Serrianne assemblages were exhibited in February, 2017 at the juried national show of the American Craft Council in Baltimore, Maryland.
