Velk Marko

Marko Velk was born in Yugoslavia in 1969. Graduated from  L’Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs, Paris, France, he lives and works in New York since 2011.

The drawing as a system of representation has the power to set adrift the viewer’s mind. The efficiency of its technique puts us on a level footing with the intentions of the author and, in consequence, enacts a partition  in which the projections of the artist’s subconsciousness flow as pure evidences. And so we start to believe , because it is the image that fascinates us, that those phantasmagoria have a foundation, just like the rational has one, and that the human species, perhaps, is not only defined  by the genetic grid. But,not any drawing is capable of producing such effect ; what it requires is an undefinable part that transcends representation and makes of it an enigma. Marko Velk’s drawing belongs to that level of exactitude, not only because of the virtuosity of his technique (since to retain only that side of it would mean to misinterpret and devalue it), but because of his ability which belongs to a different register, the register of thought and its power of evoking and questioning.
