AM has always seen Mark Warren Jacques (interviewed) as much as a storyteller as an artist since we became immersed in his work a number of years ago. His latest solo exhibition opens this Thursday at Portland’s Breeze Block Gallery and is entitled Each Story In This Story Has A Story. Heartfelt sentiments interlaced with abstracted narrative, explosive colours and the very tightest of line-work are just some of the elements that are to be found within his work.

We got to spend some time with Mark and see him at work in his Portland studio recently when in town for the Space//Form group show, which Mark coincidentally helped to hang. Take a look at some of the work in progress in the photos and the video below.
