Mark Stockton is a draughtsman invested in the intimacy of the hand-made. He is fascinated with the visual vernacular of American culture with a specific interest in individualism. Inspired by historical drawings and printmaking, he employs portraiture to depict contemporary icons with complex identities. His practice involves time-intensive traditional techniques, adding a level of investment to these fleeting subjects. Through his labor, he reproduces the synthetic product of media imagery through intimately human means.
Mark Stockton has had four solo exhibitions with Vox Populi: Beat Your Altar in 2014, The World, This One in 2013, General Index in 2012, and Flesh for Worms in 2010.
