Description of piece:
Mark’s paintings are inspired by the intensely personal introspective journey of life, from the ever changing complexities of love, loss, birth and death -- continuously building up and tearing down, layer upon layer, adding and subtracting. The canvas may be painted over four or five times with the past lying just beneath the surface of the present in each incarnation, adding to it’s overall dimension and depth. In his work he seeks to evoke a feeling rather than depict a defined image. Mark uses primarily oils, found objects, and encaustics to create thickly layered and textured canvases, with emotive bursts of color over a earth toned palette of which words, phrases and random thoughts vaguely reveal their message. This piece, Echoes and Silence, was created during a particularly introspective period when he was exploring the space between.

Artist bio:
Mark Acetelli was born in Detroit into an artist household. Mark’s mother was a painter and some of his earliest memories include the smell of turpentine and oil paints. Growing up surrounded by his mother’s work, he was inspired and encouraged to become an artist.  Mark’s works can be found in many private and corporate collections around the world including Raytheon Corp, Universal Studios, Warner Bothers, Michael Jordan, Stuart Beattie, Claire Forlani, Camryn Mainhiem and Francine Maisler.
