Mark Stockton

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 five solo shows at Vox Populi:

Of Consequence in 2015

Beat Your Altar in 2014

The World, This One in 2013

General Index in 2012

And Flesh for Worms in 2010.
