  • The Confluence of Ages artwork by Mark Cross

About Artist:

New Zealand born artist Mark Cross is considered one of the South Pacific's leading contemporary realist painters.?Dividing his time between studios in Auckland and?the central Polynesian island of Niue,?Mark Cross?hyperrealism paintings are sought after by collectors from the Pacific rim and further afield. Employing landscapes often with people in them,?Mark Cross?works are well known for imparting a social message that speaks of mankind's delinquent abuse of his home the Earth. They speak of the world but are intrinsically Pacific.?

About Artwork:

Here the 400 BC ruins of Delos Island in Greece are juxtaposed by the vapour trails of jets presumably on their way to Athens Airport, thus the anthropological confluence reflected also in the compositional one. I have avoided architecture in my work but that is because the buildings in our Pacific homes are so new, where in Europe, the age of man's constructs here have all but reverted some of the buildings into the natural landscape making them some kind of hybrid, semi-organic element, not purely landscape and not purely architecture. This is a fascinating new element for me to use in future ponderings on humanity.
