"Mark strives for an economy of means, the attempt to do the most with the least. He is highly sensitive in his use of material. Substances are often used spectacularly. Mark seeks to make the ordinary extraordinary.

I consider Mark's sensitivity, sense of self-discipline and contemplativeness to distinguish him as an artist."
