A collection of original paintings by San Francisco artist Mark Harris that combines graphic imagery and text in a bold observation of the state of America and politics at a critical time in it's history.
The voices of patriots and dictators past are resurrected through notable quotes to create a timely narrative that will surely engage the reader on a visceral level.
Not for the politically faint of heart this poignant commentary will leave you with plenty of food for thought.
Self-taught as an artist, Mark Harris makes exceptional use of color in his paintings. He has a keen eye and the ability to create strong, beautiful, contemporary images. Mark has exhibited at the Triton Museum of Art in Santa Clara, CA, Marin Museum of Contemporary Art in Novato, CA, and the California Modern Gallery in San Francisco, CA, just to name a few. His work is included in corporate and private collections both domestically and internationally, in such places as the SF Bay Area, Atlanta, Chicago, London, and Chile. Harris’ style can be described as bold and sophisticated, and his body of work demonstrates a remarkably broad range of artistic talent. Harris continues to develop his unique visual vocabulary and is an emerging artist to keep your eye on.
