A moody sky looms large over turquoise waters and a bright white shore. Mark Bartkiw’s mesmerizing ethereal photographs play with our perception of reality by slightly distorting images to create an imaginary world. He uses a variety of techniques to create a collage of images in his photo-based artwork.

“This remanufacturing of landscape and architecture results in objects and buildings that float in a slightly skewed space. Reassembling reality based on the experience of multiple places and locations creates new spaces that verge on recognizable but defy definition.” Mark Bartkiw
