Mark Flores


Mark FloresArtist’s Statement

When I was young, I spent a lot of time absorbing as much visual information as I could. I spent many hours at the library, watching tv, and seeing movies. There wasn’t much in the way of art to see in the town where I grew up, but I could draw and paint. My grandfather taught me how to build things and get things done. It wasn’t until later that I realized I could use my hands as well as my way of seeing and comprehending the world to reflect and question my experiences.
