Biography of Mark Mattson

I am an artist and retired art teacher. Though painting is my primary interest, I have taken enthusiastic tangents into art history, printmaking, metalsmithing, woodworking and poetry. My creative process in the studio and classroom alike has often centered on the relationship of image to word.

How Now Mao

How now Mao?
given your 15 of fame,
Entomed in an American museum
as a commodity hung on a wall,
Crudely silkscreened in black with loose
Unregistered brush strokes to give it a handmade look?
Back home, your billboards and posters long gone,
Supplanted by skyscrapers commerce and carnivores.
Your brand is bankrupt, footnoted, irrelevant.
