Product description:About Series 'Misplaced Faith in Gravity'  Man kinds Power struggle over itself ignoring the possibilities of the unknown. consuming ourselves with the mundane tasks to repeat over and over to sustain one group of people. Our race has repeated this process for thousands of years. Looking past where we can go or what we could actually accomplish as a people if it was not for the ego and the need for power.  Misplaced Faith in Gravity questions that perhaps we have accepted things as they are for long enough. This series of works has been created, while reading various philosophy studies on the human condition and on society. I made a purpose not to know what author or what philosopher I was reading as I wanted it to be gathered as general knowledge and not specific to any one ideal.  The abstract temples / ships visualize a kind of mental gateway we could some day pass into the next stage of existence.  The work depicting humans are represented with ill shaped forms and distorted perspectives to visualize the absurdity of our kind. But also our ability to learn and love. That we are not a failed species, but just flawed.  Keeping us in a primal / tribal state, I feel comments on how we are still today. We have high tech gear, a more 'civilized' way of living, but in the end we are still these tribal creatures, looking to become the next king of the tribe and eradicate all neighboring tribes. This Piece Is a pen and ink drawing on hemp paper, mounted onto wood with wood assemblage. Piece is varnish in a gloss coat. Ready to hang.

Mark M. Mellon has been painting and creating artwork since 1996. After leaving school in 1998, he decided that learning the disciplines of being an artist worked best when it was self taught. He studied and learned through using books, information online and learning from local artists, writers and philosophers. Not only about art and it’s history, but also immersing himself into independent study of philosophy, psychology, mythology as well as just simply trying to live life as a human. His artwork has always been an extension...
