The Mystical art of Marko Stout

The Mystical art of Marko Stout

When a doctor in medicine and metaphysics decides to trade a physician career for art one can expect a post-expressionist abstract style. Using universal archetypes and dream symbols the New York City artist Marko Stout analyzes the human condition and the mind-body experience through vibrant acrylic on canvas paintings. Opposing to Descartes' philosophy of Cartesian dualism Marko Stout believes in a lively universe where everything is interconnected all the more so the mind and the material body. The artist describes his innovative art as taking part of the “academic visionary" movement which aims at better understanding the human experience and the fundamental nature in the universe.

art of Marko Stout

Using Jungian principles the artist links human physiology with psychological symbols through a vivid color palette. When in California Marko started using acrylics that lead to his vibrant abstract style, his color picks are careful and meaningful, bold red indicates all things intense and passionate, heavy black is applied to show mystery, restlessness, remorse and decay while frequent use of yellow symbolizes optimism, enlightenment as well as dishonesty, cowardice, betrayal and jealousy. Whereas white often illustrates coldness, clinical sterility, reverence, purity, conflict resolution or even just simplicity.

You will be able to admire Dr. Stout’s abstract art in person if you will attend the artist’s upcoming NYC Exhibit, "The Cave" scheduled for fall 2011. The exhibit aims at providing the observer with a unique spiritual experience. Following Plato’s philosophy “The Cave” is a scenario in which people take illusions to be real and vice versa. It is an artistic metaphor for our limitations in thought and senses, as our human experience is limited by our captivity within a physical body; for that reason the attempt to fully understand the universe through myth, religions and even scientific methodology is impossible.

I was just introduced to Marko Stout. His subjects and art are philosophical and spiritual. Marko's works are abstract and reveal a range of emotions that are at times rational and can also be irrational, It's very much left open to the interpretations of the viewer.
