Assemblage Sculpture Art
15 x 11 x 9 inches
A likely late 1800’s top hat from London hat maker Melton— “hat maker to the queen” (see inside label). On my forever search for unusual found objects, this top hat was discovered up on a high shelf of a warehouse annex of an Indiana antique dealer who said, “it’s been up there for over 20 years, have no idea where it came from.”
The small vintage cards present a royal flush of hearts.
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 apersonal 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.
