About this painting
A painting about film maker Ingmar Bergman, one of Mark's influences and artistic heroes, a man with unique insight into relationships. The painting is about the man and his soul, his lack of peace, of home and contentment. Despite making many great films, a secure sense of home and family is rare in his work, if present at all.

Here the tree reaches across a wind swept landscape of cold debris, reaching for home, searching.
