about Marcus Jake
I've recently moved from the UK to Victoria BC, Canada. It seemed like a good opportunity to update and start using my account again!
My current work is a series of mixed media pieces that portray hope, love, connection and courage. Each multi layered piece contains an authentic balance, yin and yang; strength, beauty, bravery, vulnerability and compassion, without ignoring or shying away from the feelings and emotions that come from heartbreak, sadness, loss, depression and shame. These artworks are essentially mirrors, the narrative speaks of our shared journey’s and of our healing. Who we become when we show the courage and vulnerability to walk the path through to healing and correction, to be in fear of the unknown and what may be ahead, but to step right outside our comfort zone and walk the path anyway, whilst allowing others to witness this vulnerable part of who we are. This is real courage, strength and authentic vulnerability.
