Scripture-Infused Sacred Modern Art
Mark innovated the Painting With Light technique in 2006 with a desire to express God’s word more deeply through his spiritual art. The special digital process re-renders his art using the selected Bible verse that inspired the original painting as a paintbrush.
The technique relies on a time-intensive software process that first analyzes the original artwork, and then imperceptibly uses the words of the selected verse as a modern digital brush to paint the canvas. The process colorizes each letter and word from the verse and then digitally renders them in overlapping copies, millions of times across the canvas. Some works take up to two full days before the one-of-a-kind new canvas has been completely Painted with Light.
