About "Your Heart Is Mine"

"Your heart is mine" - a statement found in history, archaeology, religion and relationships. The painting is allegorical in nature incorporating the statement as expressed by so many cultures, religions, lovers and manipulators.
A woman places her hand on her lover's heart and whispers the words in his ear. An endearment or a threat, possibly a warning? Are they equally in love or is she trying to manipulate him into staying even though his eyes do not meet hers but look for something new.
A tattoo on his arm of the Sacred Heart of Catholicism hints at Christianity's desire for Christ's heart/love and the need for the Christian to 'give' his heart to Christ.
Each balustrade is topped with a replica statue of Chacmool, the messenger of the Aztec gods, who transported the extracted the still beating hearts of the human sacrifices as offerings to the gods who claimed; "Your heart is mine" and treasured the blood sacrifices.

About Mark

Light is the artist's inspiration, especially the play of light and dark on contours of objects, landscapes and figures.
Over time the objective to accurately represent the subject matter has developed into a desire to elicit a response from the viewer. The artist recognises narrative in fleeting moments and validates his interpretation thereof through feedback from the viewer.
