Assemblage Sculpture Art
17 x 6 1/2 x 13 inches
Artists draw inspiration from many sources. This feathered bird once lived in an old small wind-up cage atop a music box. A bundle of old artists brushes rest in the finger hole. The vintage artist pallet drips with turquoise paint onto a painted antique wooden decorative form. A very old tube of artist paint and tiny ceramic paint tray lay nearby. Metal stand.
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.
