These four paintings by Mark Warren Jacques should give you a good idea of just how amazing his work is. They are part of the series “It’s Out There – In Here” which Mark exhibited along with some installations (of the same dazzling skill) back in 2009 in Portland.
I find myself relating to these pieces in a very personal way, after having read the titles. Naturally my first reaction to Mark’s work was complete amazement at the scope of his creativity. Then I lost myself in those patterns and multi-dimensional spaces (for lack of a better word). Until finally, after having read the titles, I discovered a whole new depth to each piece, changing my perspective from pure admiration to total entrancement.
