Mortality, memory and transformation – essential elements of our experience – are themes that resonate throughout the oeuvre of Mark Sturkenboom.
This a second series that followed up the successful first collection for which Mark Sturkenboom has formulated a mineral-based fluid which, through a gradual process of accretion, precipitates the growth of crystals on various types of objects. As part of the Overgrown series, “Once Upon A Time” is a collection of diamond-shaped mirrors that are overgrown with natural minerals, in this gold edition it’s not overgrown with crystals but contains carefully applied 24kt gold leaf. The mirrors portray a fading self reflection and allude to a changing state of transience in time and identity.
