Mark Watkins

Mark’s analog collage explores the minutiae of human existence, often based upon how memories are stored, fragment or re-surface. Ideas and themes are realised through the juxtaposition and layering of torn or cut fragments of images, colours and text describing environments and situations that can appear absurd, disturbing, humorous or beautiful.

The studio is in South Derbyshire and visits can be arranged.
All the work is for sale. Please email or call for information.
