Mark Ollinger – Apathism

Mark Ollinger’s work is rooted in the breakdown and analyzation of the universal laws and fundamental frameworks that create and shape our personal experiences of life and the third dimension. He begins with how we communicate. He explores the tool which molds our inner and outer thought expressions, language, and the alphabets that embody those languages.

Mark’s series of street art installations play with words, their meanings, and also their physical appearance as a means to isolate and then represent these laws and frameworks. These work often have a very distinct physical presence within their surroundings and though installed after hours of hand crafting the sculpture – they fit in the space as if they’re supposed to be there.
