Plymouth, United Kingdom, 1971

We find the experience of the fragmentary and the unstable in Mark Hosking’s works, both in his sculptures in which the accident and the collapse take part, the one that has already happened or the one that is about to happen, and in his subtle paintings in which the forms of the painting and the figures of its interior collide and begin to integrate.
His creations take a step beyond the pure rationality of minimalism, whose formal authority is here questioned. Works that demonstrate the failure of pure form and show the impossibility of absolute integration and the constant permanence of a difference that resists being metabolized. A difference that eliminates the illusion of totality and makes us aware of the accidental and breakable part.
