Mark Masyga
Brooklyn, NY
Neighborhood: Williamsburg



ARTIST STATEMENT: Walter de Maria once said “I like natural disasters and I think that they may be the highest form of art possible to experience.” My work has been informed by both the physical appearance and the temporal nature of the built environment. Previously fascinated by structures in the process of being erected (including construction sites), I have more recently focused on the downside of the building cycle: collapsing buildings, deteriorating war bunkers, detritus left from earthquakes, wild fires and wars. I believe there will be no shortage of inspiration in the near future. Also, I find comfort in humble materials (e.g., concrete, rebar, lumber) and have been exploring their physical, sociological and political uses. Resourceful Palestinians have recently recycled rubble from their own destroyed infrastructure and parts of the Separation Wall to create a sewage treatment plant in one example of improbable transcendence.
