Solo Show Finding Familiar, June 2012

 

Mark Errol Artist Bio

Mark Errol is a originally from New York, lived in Florida for seven years and is currently working on his MFA at Georgia State University here in Atlanta. Clay was a part of his life early on as his brother was using plaster molds to make ceramic piggy banks in their tiny New York City apartment. From there he would become interested in using clay in his art making while in high school, then again in college where after three years of education he took the leap, changed majors and focused on ceramics.

He has worked retail, has taught elementary school and was quite possibly the worst Apple store employee of all time. All these adventures in the work force always gave way to making pottery and now there is not turning back. Mark finds the best time away from the studio to be going to junk sales, road trips to the mountains ( where he eventually hopes to settle down ) and listening to music and art hunting.

 

Mark Errol Artist Statement

For most, life is a series of routines. Acts repeated that become a part of our everyday. These moments become so common we almost lose trace of them without a reminder once in awhile that puts them back in focus. Sometime they are not merely acts but objects or people that collaborate to form the basics of our days.

For me moving to Atlanta within the last year has been a tremendous act of being out of sorts. New housing, new streets to navigate, new relationships to form. Though these are exciting times, the desire to find my routine, to find the familiar has been important for me.

This body of work seeks to demonstrate the situations in which we live. Through colors, patterns and textures, I am depicting environments I have seen that have invigorated my creativity and yet helped me in making a new base. Sgraffito, carving, mishima and other forms of mark making are common in my work and allow me to give the viewer a sense of the surroundings from which I gather information. Each time I make a new piece I am reintroduced to the ability to translate and communicate a new experience, person or place that has become part of my new endeavors.

It is my intention to create relationships between me, the ceramic objects and those that come in to contact with them. The use of a coffee cups, bowls, plates and other every day objects that are handmade can transform the mundane into special moments. They also create a relationship between me and the owner. It is these connections between object, owner and myself that I seek and desire and is the basis for my making of functional yet unique ceramic vessels.
