Mark Seabrook is a gifted man of the land who is equally at home in urban Ottawa. Born in Ontario's northland, he has been recognized for his contribution to the arts, specifically music, literature, and painting. His latest collection of paintings will be on display at Collected Works from June 25th to August 30. A Vernissage will be held at 7:00 p.m. on June 25th, 2004.
Through Mark's art, he shares with us his dreams, reflections and unique perceptions of life. His latest collection of paintings was created on a reserve, three hours north of Ottawa, where he has been working as a teacher this past year. "Up north, I have had a lot of time to think and paint," says Mark, a man often of a few words.
The world of spirits and dreams are not a foreign landscape to Mark. He offers the raw honesty of an artist sharing a glimpse of his inner world. Painted in a traditional Ojibwa Woodland Style, this series reveals the inner landscape of a man hiding nothing of the reality and psyche of a life lived with honesty and vision. Here we find work revealing a son, haunted and reeling in pain from the sudden loss of his father, as well as the jubilation of a young father who recalls the birth of his beautiful daughter. The colours range from bright and bold to dark and menacing; the haunting images include ancestors and spirit animals.
Within this art exhibit is also a premiere showing of some of the artwork that Mark has created for his first children's book, "A Father and his Daughter". In this book, we find a firsthand account of a native father's dreams of his daughter while he walks through the woodlands. "This book is a reflection of my long walks over this past year, listening to the wind through the pines and watching the fire as the sun went down," says Mark. "My daughter has opened my heart to new experiences and a love unlike any I've experienced before. Being a father is a beautiful and wonder-filled experience; it has changed my life and I thank the Creator for her conception and birth."
