Sackcloth and ashes, mourning is a part of life, it is sobering to the psyche and good for us. My art frequently takes a dark and mournful twist; yet beauty is presented in a near Goth-like fashion. Perhaps it is a reflection of my mindset, I appreciate the sobriety of mourning yet searching out the good in everything. Both contrasting and combining in a unique but beautiful merge of dark with light, gloom with hope, and loathsome with lovely. In essence, are we any different? Therefore, I am always looking for the inner beauty in people. No matter how gloomy, there's still a sense of beauty that can be brought out, hiding amidst the dark, lonesome perspectives. Marc Eliuk
Biography: I am an artist, herbalist and teacher, and once was a preacher. Perhaps too melancholy for the cloth, although having a close personal friendship with God, I still wanted to make a difference. Somehow I became a highschool teacher; however, my meticulous and artistic nature eventually led me to discovering oil painting. Once I began experimenting with this medium several years ago, my ability took off beyond my wildest expectations. I'm sure it is because of the forgiving nature of oil paints; I work the image, over and over until I have exactly what I want and do not give up until it is perfect. I've spent years perfecting my style and currently I've moved into bizarre expressions and surrealism. Marc Eliuk
