MARK SHELTON by Gary Mier

F

our years ago, my wife saw Mark Shelton’s work unceremoniously gathering dust in a high dark corner of a public shop. She came home and told me that I had to see it (I’d heard that before). When I finally got around to meeting up with Mark, he brought his work down to eye level and into the light. I was speechless. The work was unlike anything I had ever seen: not quite painting or collage or sculpture – yet all three. Not preachy, yet full of a message. Mark and I met three times - once on location at Maya Lin’s Land Bridge in Vancouver - during January to discuss his work, designation as Honorary Tribal Artist for the Chinook tribe, and the ups and downs of the Santa Fe art scene.
