Mark Waller – painter of magic moments.
After several years in the workaday world, Mark realized that he was meant to be an artist – he understood that, seemingly just out of reach, is another world.
A magical place of insignificant events and places – magic that passes unnoticed in our workaday scramble for survival.
The paradox is that these simple events and places have a complexity and power beyond imagination. They can transform our reality. This is the area in which I paint. The world beyond what we see, and what may actually be more “real”.
For me and viewers of my work, I attempt to be a signpost by documenting and elevating these access points.
I am a connoisseur of these moments. The viewing of them reconnects me to this other world. Painting these moments allows me to surrender to ”being”. I wallow in these moments. They are my sanity and solidity.
They are the answer.
