Sturkenboom delivers absolute statements through fierce intention, careful planning, and a purposeful energy that proliferates in his will to express. Throughout all of this he manages to balance a visual cadence between the absurd and a sharp sense of humor.
He welcomes the viewer to casually slip into his conceptual narrative.
Through Atelier Mark Sturkenboom, he has formulated a mineral-based fluid which, through a gradual process of accretion, precipitates the growth of crystals on various types of objects. As part of the Overgrown series, “Once Upon A Time” is a collection of diamond-shaped mirrors that are overgrown with natural minerals. The mirrors portray a fading self reflection and allude to a changing state of transience in time and identity.
