Hodges Taylor Gallery in Charlotte, NC, Offers Works by Mark Flowers
Hodges Taylor Gallery in Charlotte, NC, will present the exhibit, Mark Flowers: Visual Vocabulary, featuring paintings on view from Apr. 6 through May 29, 2010.
Telling stories through
his art, Flowers has developed a Visual Vocabulary - symbols that
create an ongoing dialogue between the artist and his viewer. Painted
on manipulated surfaces with attached ready-made objects, his
current work seeks a balance between the purely sculptural and
the traditional illusionary while it explores the use of faces,
figures and objects to create a visual poetry.
After earning his BFA in Studio Arts from The University of South Carolina in 1977 and his MFA in Painting from Western Michigan University in 1979, Flowers embarked on dual careers as a professional artist and art teacher. He has spent his adult life pursing his art, teaching what he knows and serving his community.
"As my life got bigger and my work developed, I visually reported my experiences as a teacher, firefighter, husband, and father," says Flowers. This exhibition provides a unique opportunity to share the stories he tells through his art.
Flowers' work has been
exhibited throughout the United States and Europe; it can be found
in public and private collections throughout the country. His
relationship with Hodges Taylor Gallery spans over 20 years.
