Sound Bite: The Psychopath Test

Mark Dickson and I discuss our place on the scale of psychopathy, as well as the possible benefits of being ranked relatively high upon it.

As a young rapscallion stranded on an Island, my time is split between writing, performing spoken word, wrestling alligators and delivering uplifting pep talks to hairdressers before they prune me. I meditate and wash daily when possible.

Interviews With Creative Minds. No.7: Mark Mordey (audio)

Mark Mordey is a fascinating man, his story is one of an unceasing roller coaster ride that for a long time appeared in danger of hurtling from the rails.

During his mid-50’s he found his bliss, becoming a spoken word poet, philanthropist and couch surfing host, who regularly entertains people on (and off) his boat. This interview skims the surface of a truly remarkable, kind human being who it is hard to believe was shy and retiring less than a decade ago.

Featured Artist – Mark Dickson

There are some people who transcend one aspect of art, they are ‘burdened’ with a multitude of specific talents that could conceivably justify them being labelled as a modern day renaissance or overwhelmed prodigy.

Mark Dickson trees

Mark Dickson is a talented musician, creative tour de force, charitable son of a gun and gifted chef among other things, but it is perhaps for his sketches and craft creations that he is currently best known.

His work ranges from simple caricatures to a series of intricate and evocative  ‘grickonel’ characters (an animal created by the artist that is perhaps most accurately described as a hybrid of a kangaroo and rabbit.) These are predominantly composed of felt and are instantly captivating.

Word of Dickson’s thought provoking concepts is already commonplace throughout the south coast art scene, with regular commissions coming his way.

To that end, winter is a good season to get in touch if you’re interested in utilising Mark’s talents for any relevant projects you may have on the horizon.

Details on how to contact the artist or look at/listen to more of his impressive offerings are listed below the gallery.
