Mark Dion Featured in Poughkeepsie Journal’s “Portrait of the Artist”

The Poughkeepsie Journal published an interview with artist Mark Dion as part of their regular feature, “Portrait of the Artist.” The article provides an interesting and unique inside perspective to Dion’s personal history as an artist, the inspiration behind his own work, and his ideas about art and artists in general. His thoughts on the artistic process and the artist as an observer are intriguing: “I don’t think we [artists] perceive things differently, but for some reason we feel the need to make our observations available in a highly complex visual language.”
