Assemblage Sculpture Art
17 x 6 1/2 x 13 inches
Long lost are afternoons of the special matinee “Double Feature” movie theater visits. Movie icons like those represented in these vintage collectable cards—Jean Harlow, Marlene Dietrich and Clark Gable—delivered the screen magic. Resting on the wooden stand underneath the enclosed wooden display case are original movie tickets from classic old theaters. Among them is a Metro Goldwyn pinback showing a locomotive as the logo from the early movie era before they were MGM (Metro Goldwyn Mayer) with the lion logo. A rare Double Feature stamp billboards the sculpture.
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.
