* This series provides an excellent investment opportunity in a brand new art sub-genre within art, where parts of major public galleries are posited as artworks in their own right; thus negating, neutralising and democratizing the anachronistic air of exclusivity and pompous elitism pervading such institutions.

Jack Frost working late again..

Reworking of work 350 from 2009. Topical DN tropical, Mr Frost – although nearing Easter – is enjoying his UK work so much, he refuses to ‘pack ice it in’ and snow shoe-shuffle off to his polar retreat” noitanrebih ” ( reverse hibernation ).

Art should never lose its playful, humorous side

  UK Society Now

  c. Michael St.Mark 2013

 

Social commentary work.

Reflection on the surge in population in the last decade c/w targeted government cuts causing greatly increased pressure on jobs, public services, education, housing and lower-to-middle income in the chronic body crush and ubiquitous omnipresent car/truck rampage that is England 2013.

On an aesthetic level the image presents an interesting abstraction of feathery flux within
a narrowly defined color and tonal range.

“Dada is the revolt of the personality threatened on so many sides, a revolt against levelling, stupidity and destruction. It is the distress cry of creative people against banality” – Richard Huelsenbeck ( one of the five original Dadaists of 1916 )
