Mark has created a composition with similarities to pieces from his 'Storyteller' series where the setting is an abandoned, derelict building- in this case an asylum. Those concepts of light and dark run through this piece and Mark has included the two Joker characters as an important central, visual focus to the composition. Mark conveys the contrasting behaviour of the characters where one Joker projects a simmering anger in the shadows and the other is displaying that air of exuberance, as if he feels set free. It is a captivating piece of work with beautiful detail that truly captures the sense of the complexities of this comic book character.
'It was initially going to be purely based on ‘The Dark Knight’ film with the wonder of Heath Ledger but for me personally from watching the most recent ‘Joker’ movie and being left completely open mouthed by the pure brilliance of the brutality and the utter sadness of the character and what happened to him, it took on a different form.'
