For an article in D Magazine about "growing up in a town that is no longer there", Mark Hoffman created this conceptual illustration depicting the houses as haunting shells with a foreboding sky that further sets the mood for West, Texas, as a Ghost Town. Mark's primitive art style has a dream-like quality perfect for the way the story is told through childhood memories. To see more of Mark's evocative conceptual art, visit his updated portfolio here.
Ghost Town by Mark Hoffmann
Mark Hoffmann has been having big fun creating smallish art for the Enormous Tiny Art Show #13! His naive visual vocabulary is, as always, full of wit with an underlying deeper wisdom. Of his art, Mark says, "The work is meant to be perfect through its imperfections. The boards I paint on are warped and frayed around the edges. Perspectives, proportions, compositions and colors are intentionally left awkward to add to the conversation."
The show runs from February 1-25. Check out the huge selection of art (no larger than 10″ x 10″) for sale at very reasonable prices here. Better move fast because some have already sold before the sale has officially begun!
If you're local attend the opening at the Nahcotta Gallery in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, Friday February 1st, 5-8pm.
