Artists Statement…..Mark Reyment
Art is what happens when I’m busy making plans! What starts out as a simple idea becomes increasingly complex, I like to play with disorder and my work reflects degrees of disorder frozen in time.
I often give my work whimsical titles, usually based on whatever was rattling around in my head at the time.
It’s not the fall that kills you (financial pressures)
The worlds strangest married couple (a reflection on love)
A Berlin crisis (feeling under siege)
A man of letters (self-depreciation).
These are things from everyday life given expression in Boxes, clouds, cages, flagpoles, scaffold, factories and towers, what seems chaotic is not quite so! There is a certain amount of order, but there is always a point where I just stop and say that’s it!
