Artist Mark Anderson
I consider myself to be a student of the world, happily ignoring any attempt at “photographic” representation. In fact, I’m quite content directing my attention toward the mood or quality of a particular place and moment. The energy of a mark or brush stroke is more interesting to me than the labor of highly rendered “finished” pieces. A decision to leave such preciousness behind has been a conscious one, as was the choice of simple tools used to realize such expression: a fountain pen, a tiny watercolor kit, a sketchbook made by hand from my favorite paper.
