“The trompe l’oeil device has a tremendous inherent ability to engage the viewer. It is a bridge; a threshold that connects the actual with the imagined.  The more I explore the world beyond this threshold, the more exciting and rewarding this discipline becomes.”  

Celebrating the ‘journey’ in a niche of glazed bas-relief.  Journey into an historical corridor—past the trek of plough, cart and clinker—beyond our founding fathers to the real starting point.  To the water which has heralded the end of the godwit’s remarkable journey to New Zealand, every year, for ages past.

Using the trompe l’oeil genre, Marc has won the prestigious judge’s award at the International Muralfest, Sheffield, Tasmania in 2008,  2009, and again in 2010.
