where the artist comes in


a drawing by Rembrandt




















[The artist] must show people more—more than they already see, and [she] must show them with so much human sympathy and understanding that they will recognize it as if they themselves had seen the beauty and the glory. Here is where the artist comes in.
Charles Hawthorne

These studio notes are scraps of poetry and ideas that feed my work as a painter. I hope they establish a bit of context for the paintings and my intention in making them. Whatever I paint, I’m trying to create some space for us to sit with the questions that are not meant to be answered. These paintings are available for sale. Please email me [horst.mark@gmail.com] for a price list and shipping options.
