“The theme of my work is based on the button blanket. It is minimalistic in nature and refers to the nature of spiritual ideas. Most of the work is set in white so as to imply the nature of spirit. My work is referenced from a traditional base, however is speaking about the future – striving to reach a place of calm and clarity in my own nature, and in my vision of that place in which many humans strive but never quite reach.” – Mark Preston
