Today – a look at recent work by Deano, also called Mark Stewart-Deane. You can come and see his ‘Hauntological Dimensions’ triptych (pictured here) at our Fine Art Summer Show in the old Top Shop, St Catherine’s Walk, Carmarthen, from 10-17 July 2021. Other works from his ‘Extraordinary the Disconnect’ series are being shown online […]
Photographs of the work are not the work, they are a representation of the work. It can become complex, layered, enfolded. I take a digital photograph using my mobile phone. I get a print shop to print it, and then I draw on it, and screen print words onto it, in layers. Then, I try […]
