Mark Elliot Flowers Painting, Holy Conflicts, Early Masterwork:
This painting, HOLY CONFLICTS, by MARK ELLIOT FLOWERS, was painted in response to the assassination of Egyptian President, Anwar Sadat.
It is undated, but that would have been 1981.
As I recall it, Mark arrived at the gallery with the painting within days of Sadat’s death, saddened as many of us were, wondering what this loss might mean for the progress of peace.
As all of Mark’s paintings are, HOLY CONFLICTS, is his effort to understand the world around him.
HOLY CONFLICTS measures approximately 48 inches by 48 inches.
It’s been exhibited in low light and pampered all these years, but does somewhat show its age. Well, those might have been the Sears house paint days...
Nevertheless, it’s a wonderful piece... genuine.
Mark’s list of professional credits is long, museum, public and private collections, awards, honors, exhibits including the Asheville Art Museum, Savannah College of Art and Design and McKissick Art Gallery at the University of South Carolina.
Public collections include Springs Mills Inc., South Carolina National Bank, University of South Carolina, Greenville County Museum of Art,Columbia Museum of Art, Citizens and Southern National Bank, Keane and Sheratt Architects, South Carolina Arts Commission, Macy’s of San Francisco, Gibbes Museum, Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond, Hyatt Regency among others.
