Mark Cole is an inventive and ambitious painter. He is an explorer. As a student, he was intrigued by color theory and the complexity that can arise from the repetition and variation of simple shapes. As a professional he continues to explore these themes. He is looking for new arrangements and new harmonies and he is always pushing his ideas a little further. I am excited to see what comes next.
