Mark Tansey: The Conflict of an Ambiguous Narrative

Mark Tansey may at first glance appear smugly ironic, but has a fascinatingly subtle subversiveness to his thinking. He is nothing if not an extremely thoughtful painter, as well as a technically superior one. He understands that representation and narrative are very complex things. His paintings are also as much about post modern criticism as they are about art and painting. Here is an illuminating text on his work by a professor of the arts and philosophy, Mark Taylor.
