Mark Bakema 1987 Netherlands lives and works in Sankt Gallen Switzerland

I am a Dutch artist currently based in Switzerland. My work is a nonlinear investigation that takes me into multiple directions that are equally important. The works I present are digitally drawn/ created by me and materialized with help of a drawing machine or a laser cutter.
With this working process I am pursuing up to date questions like question whether the work is made by a human or a digital program and how relevant I as an artist am in the process of making/creating and how relevant the matter of coincidence is in my work (or what role coincidence plays in my work)

For questions or contact don't hesitate to send me an email at:
