The somewhat ironic play with the name of the exhibition itself speaks of skillful labeling, and not of the banal associative connection between nature and our movements, during which we notice, stop and record certain sequences. They are instructive for separate consideration, both of the terms that name the form and of the content that does not have to be referentially determined. Marko abstracted the fortified depiction of nature, although the title evokes its presence. Largely established and already problematic schematic representations and lattice forms, at some moments, are interrupted by clear line strips, which come to the fore, ideologically support and affirm the always present imperfection, uncertainty, because uniformity of path through any research work is impossible. Marko reflects his analysis of space through four dimensions, which is inevitable through his primary and sculptural thinking, and here through his intuitive nature of practice and performance. As he passes, he captures scenes, penetrates the essential energy of the visible, filters the more important than the peripheral, experiments on the micro landscape, regenerates the expression of nature through his modulation of thought and calculation. Abstract visualization of order and chaos is sublimated in tiny units, regardless of the chosen format. The works are not unarticulated sketches, but a highly recognizable visual language of the artist, a collection of long-standing, conscious, and logical articulation of forms and forms, both in space and on canvas.
