MARKS STUDY

CLICK ON THE IMAGE FOR MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THE ARTWORKS

This study is focused on the mark-making of common consumer goods and tools such as paintbrush, plastic wrap, tea bag, mints, paper coffee cup, and rice noodles soaked in acrylic color. The intention behind the study is to point out the diversity of the train of thought, to give recipients an idea about how creative processes might work - often when a person sees an ordinary object, he/she doesn't associate anything else except its primary function. But creative thinking tends to be different, and when looking at a subject, however boring or common it might be, the artist may not only imagine the primary function but also how the object could be used in the artistic practice.

 

The study contrasts the object with the result of its use in the creation of an artwork. After all, how we are really thinking and what we are thinking about remains one of the last mysteries (at least to some extent) in today's world of constant sharing. MARKS study is not only about understanding other ways of thinking but also about not pigeonholing something or someone and not making premature conclusions - all of these things are only subjective, they are not the universal truth and often just a reflection of our own mind.
