"The tamer of light”
Mark Drew grew up with a strong idea of freedom. This spirit of liberty runs in his veins since and his beautiful images bear this DNA and quest for a genuine independence of mind. What struck me first when I looked up at his work for the very first time was the skill and easiness he has shown to secure “his prey”, like a wild bird digging its claws into its victim! Mark Drew is born for beauty, he is this kind of hunter, furtive and secret aiming to tame the untamed frontier enriching his images with a magical spell of light. This is what I call talent. - René-Julien Praz ;
Curator Praz-DelaVallade Gallery, Paris, France
