       Mark Kurdziel’s work is a combination and continuation of plastic pictorial ideas along with deeply personal poetic concerns. The emotional tenor of his paintings is an attempt to create human emotions that do not stay on the surface but resonate with the feelings and situations we all have. Kurdziel believes an image can exist between the cracks of written and spoken words and goes to places that are not describable but tangibly understood as a state of being.
