Mark Watkins

Festival: 2018

I create analogue collage. Cut or torn imagery and paper is juxtaposed, sometimes layered and reassembled. The work tends to be small in scale and mounted to cardboard, wood and other objects such as vinyl records. The underlying theme of my work explores and references memory and dreams. How memories are stored over time, how they can surface at any given, random moment and how they are lost (some temporarily) or become fragmented often into smaller memories. I’ve always been astonished by the quality of images that can manifest themselves as part of a dream or a nightmare. The main body of work to exhibit this year will be a series called Enhanced Performance which uses vintage sport photographs.
