Guest Post: Mark Crenshaw

My name is Mark Crenshaw, I make paintings and live in Springville UT. I grew up in Santaquin, and spent th spring and summer playing in the orchards as a child. My family always had a garden, and spent the fall preserving food. As an adult, I can’t help but do the same because the taste is great, and I enjoy learning more about the food I eat.

My work explores food and other natural products I use as they develop, before they are harvested and prepared for consumption. I think of my subjects as a primary connection to nature as well as the time and place that I live.

I also build the frames, from hardwoods and genuine water gilded gold leaf.

Thanks for reading, I hope you enjoy my work!
