Mark Hosking

It proposes an investigation around the classic concept of duality. The forms of marked organic character are witness to a melted tension of opposing states. The positive and the negative, the presence and the absence, the being and the non-being. A space dominated by strangeness where the norms of perception disappear making geometric volumes shine before our eyes by presenting a reality in a continuous state of metamorphosis. Hosking’s work is an invitation to look at what is sensed, to complete the missing half, to imagine duplicities, a look that is never complete and dominated by irregular and impure forms. The tireless search for a balance that seems impossible but that we inevitably conceive as necessary.
