Mark Finzel is an award-winning contemporary surface designer and digital artist who creates highly distinctive textile and wallpaper designs, abstracts, portraits and screens. Using his own photography, he extracts imagery from nature to create patterns that are bold and elegant. His images are known for their intricacy and richness of colour.
'Imperfect Symmetry' is a collection that reflects his fascination with playing with light and photographing simple objects at oblique and distorting angles.
Inspired by the qualities of the Italian countryside, where the light refracts and reflects in an extraordinary way, his work regularly features shells, glass and rock crystal, photographed when distorted through mirrors. Once the images have been subtly re-coloured to infuse them with luminance, they become ethereal kaleidoscopes of colour, light and shape.
