Combinations of symbols, shapes and languages create the countless number of images we interact with on a constant basis. These images have sometimes been stripped of their original meaning. Whether through time, obscurity, cultural differences or even the Internet, the inherent meaning of an image can range from being completely subjective to objective for the viewer. What is an image or symbol when its meaning is lost? Does it still have a use, or can we give it one? Marco's work comes from a place detached from our history and culture, which are full of potent symbols and meanings that we are unaware of. Like an allegorical inkblot, his art allows you to fill it with your own meaning. Through this process, it becomes possible to analyze the ways in which we as a society derive meaning from and imbue images with power.
