About The Artwork

It’s a very important question now. For example, this is an interesting paradox. With all its problems, globalization is also giving us a new perspective on dignity because now there are millions of people who have to move and go somewhere else. So suddenly we get some perspective on what we mean by dignity. On the other hand, there's a whole series of problems where I don't think you could philosophically, formulate anything like a no-brainer solution. For example, the problem of biogenetics. I think it’s obvious that, at the end of this process, we will be in a position to intervene directly into our genetic structure. And this would raise literally unbelievable moral problems. For example, we may soon discover how to do selective interventions. We will know how to intervene into the genetic structure so that a certain human being will not develop certain negative features like aggressivity jealousy, sexual obsession, whatever. Now obviously the question will arise: Shouldn’t we intervene somehow to avoid certain types of people? And my answer is no.

While Mark M. Whelan's art is primarily portraits and figurative pictures. However, his aim is not to represent a beautiful image of a person or an individual in a futuristic context; rather, it’s an ongoing exploration of the process of how art is created concerning its structure, composition, colour, and technique. Like many figurative painters of his generation, it’s impossible for Whelan to avoid the looming shadows of Francisco Goya, Francis Bacon, Hieronymus Bosch and Lucian Freud, all of which have dominated the figurative world, their paintings both evocative, emotional and full of existential angst and anticipation of an uncertain future. However, Whelan is finding his futuristic path into the light, away from these titans of the art world, his work constantly seeking to go beyond the discipline of representational art and the more gestural expressionism that we are familiar with in the figurative paintings of Bacon.
