Question for the artist?

Artist's description:

A painting about social media addiction.

A slumping, almost liquid, figure gazes hypnotically at a computer screen. A hand reaches out, backwards towards the distant Earth, but it is becoming ossified, as is the planet.

Like a lot of Mark's recent work, the frame is part of the artwork to create a unique object, something beyond a print or transient digital work. As well as being a multi-layered oil painting by a skilled artist, the frame is crafted from wood and resin plaster. It matches the colours of the 2013 Facebook site, and textured plaster in the top left corner mimics bone.

Materials used:

Oil on panel, in custom made frame of pine and resin plaster.
