Mark Raymond Cross.jpg

Born 1955 in Auckland, New Zealand.

































This painting refers to the several oceanic gyres around that world, current systems that tend to collect in their vortex's the detritus of the consumer societies which surround them. Most poignant to Pacific and to the world is the North Pacific Ocean Gyre - often called the Pacific Garbage Patch - which collects the consumer junk from North America and Asia creating huge floating masses of mainly plastic in its convergence zone North of Hawaii. This plastic does not decompose for many thousands of years but breaks down into ever smaller particles which are consumed into the food chain at every level. I have used  recent garbage here for visual effect but it is a metaphor for  the broken down polymers and other chemical sludge that permeate the upper columns of these oceanic vortexes. This, while using the pristinely clear waters of Niue ironically suggests what the Northern Pacific must have been like and warning the South Pacific of what it could be like without attention paid to such issues.






This is a sweeping generalisation that the most pressing problems in the world today are the result of complacency of the masses not to mention the people with the power to change things. So we have here a group of young people entertained by something outside the painting frame (perhaps television) while oblivious to an open dump-site of  consumer garbage being burnt off behind them.

    Mark Raymond Cross




    Born in Auckland in 1955, Mark Cross began making art at the average teenager. At 23 he moved with his family to Liku, the village of his wife, on the island of Niue, and it was during these early years that coined the strong stylistic and philosophical foundations of his career as an artist. There was some disappointment with nature, too oriented to the institutional art scene in New Zealand, and isolation gave him the inspiration and lack of distraction needed to develop their work with a strong personal accent.


    Once this is accomplished returned to New Zealand in 1982, looking for a market for their work, and has since grown its reputation as one of the most important realist artists of the South Pacific.


    Cross currently lives in Niue, and although his works are very specific in their details, reference to the island is restricted to the use of local elements to create a parallel, timeless world where the figures reported and question the foibles of human nature never provide answers.
