Full of duality, Mark Alsweiler’s acrylic paintings and wooden sculptures are both rudimentary and developed, blending raw painted areas with minuscule details. Born 1983 in the mountainous South Island of New Zealand, Alsweiler now resides in Sydney, Australia. The imagery from his home country is very much evident in his often character-based work which explores man’s essential relationship with the natural world, alongside a celebration of human creativity. His work has been shown in galleries throughout Australia and New Zealand.
