Born in Alpine, Texas, Mark Lovejoy is the son of an itinerant biologist. He roamed his country, the United States, with his family and later the world, with his camera. A commercial printer by trade, Mark Lovejoy taught himself photography. His geology knowledge combined with the use of several tools, all of which is then bathed in light: this is his recipe for composing powerful images. Among his influences, pictorial art plays an important role and particularly some of its illustrious representatives, such as Jackson Pollock, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Vincent Van Gogh, or Mark Tobey. Using light, intensity, and energy, Mark Lovejoy is inspired by the pictorial movement to create abstract photographs. The American artist says: “The beauty of abstraction lies in the spectator’s perception and only dreamers can interpret dreams.” With this series of macro photographs created in the studio, American artist Mark Lovejoy tells his story. The abstract way he chooses to express himself is deliberately open to interpretation. He invites spectators to get their imaginations working, to dream. In the end, the spectator realises that all stories are both different and similar at the same time.
