Artnet Exposed, London Dada’s 13-year mission accomplished


After 13 years of making not insubstantial inroads of overdue change into the flint-hard fear and conformity-ridden glass ceiling of the 100% money-driven pretentious, shallow and cronyism-infested art world; what more suitable triumphant note on which to end a still largely unrecognized chapter in art history than the closure of Dada’s formerly missing UK expression co-inciding with being blocked by the almighty Artnet on social media, simply for having the audacity to publicise home truths about international art market big name cash cow con artists such as Koons and Hirst.

Link to the story typifying Jeff Koon’s ( and others ) MO, just the latest in a long line of habitual plagiarism of other artists’ work, combined with a depressing personal paucity of creative originality, skill, talent or moral compass in at least tipping a name hat to the unrecognized artists behind much of their output.

Armistice Day 2018


Michael St.Mark advocates returning legendary German artist Kurt Schwitters’ final creation, his Merz Wall – dubbed his ” life’s great work” – to its indisputably rightful place;  reintegrated into the Merz Barn that is still languishing vacant like a crown with its jewels long extracted, in Elterwater Cumbria.

The unbelievable indifference of strangers VII
Incredible Indifference of Strangers VII
Michael St.Mark 2016

Latest in the long-running series exploring the intriguing variety of social masks worn by the individual during the course of an average day of interaction with others.
( family mask, friends’ mask ( a variety ), the at-work mask, the etc.. )

It could be argued that public transport and supermarkets are examples of places where we are in our raw element, vacant, in an impersonal indifferent space devoid of imposition or artificiality.
