Mark Bradley-Shoup

Artist Statement Submitted 2016

When it comes to studio practice, I consider myself a pluralist, meaning that I do not dedicate myself to a singular vision or practice of creating images. The intention of my abstract and representational work is to address the theme of expansion and recession and consumption. The majority of my work is derived from my observation and interaction with the natural and constructed landscape and how we respond to our sense of place in the world and how we inhabit and utilize space. Derived from my own photographs as well as mapping systems and architectural schematics, this work is a response to consumer relationships and waste. I dedicate a third series of work that is derived from discarded items that culminate in the form of collages and mixed media. The images in this particular body of work are a form of aesthetic play and experimentation of media.
