Assemblage Sculpture Art
18 x 3 x 12 1/2 inches
We sometimes wonder about time travel backwards and forward. Distant Worlds is a celestial peek. The 18th century flax comb hatchel was found while "Picking" in Winter Garden, Florida. All of those sharp points create a tension of both fear and allure. Vintage rubber and clay balls, collected along many roadside travels, rest atop the spikes. Three old fishing bobbers elevate 3 of the balls.
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.
