Mark Hearld

Mark Hearld – an introduction

On a trip to London, just before Christmas, I bought some very beautiful paper-cut-cards. I didn’t know anything about the man who made them, and actually forgot about the cards altogether, until I just recently encountered the artist again, this time on the website of St. Jude’s

I’m not sure if I’m abel to explain why I find Hearld’s work so intriguing, but there is something in the mix of the naivety and wisdom, the lightheartedness, but also an almost invisible threatening danger, that I find really challenging. The darker sides of the motives are manifested both through colour and swirling lines.

Anyhow, for now I will just conclude this way: I like Hearld’s work – a lot!
