Mark A Metcalfe

Mark A Metcalfe lives between London and Berlin. An image can posit a peculiar melancholy or sense of the uncanny, by memorialisation of archetypal heroes, tricksters and bizarre phenomena. Each piece is dense with archetypes and recognisable emblems, whilst equally implying a new and perhaps foreign language of myth and allegory. It implies that there are perhaps things ‘lying beneath’ that are unfathomable, just below the veneer, that will defy preconceived logic and expectation.

The Fallen series takes a tantalising creation myth from the Book of Enoch and reimagines particular characters. Fallen Deities who relay hidden knowledge and inevitably corrupt, reappear across time. They are the counterpoise to our moral dictates, villains to hiss at in a pantomime.
