About

Mark Stock created Melinda, color lithograph while working as a master printer at Gemini in 1982. The edition was very small, just 12. From the very beginning his work had a short story quality to it. Sad stylish women were one of the themes he came back to throughout his career. While at Gemini, he was the master lithographer on works by David Hockney, Jasper Johns, Robert Rauschenberg and Roy Lichtenstein. Mark Stock (August 4, 1951-March 26, 2014) was born in Frankfurt, Germany. The son of an Army officer, he lived in many states across America before settling in St. Petersburg, Florida. He received his Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of South Florida in Tampa where he studied under Theo Wujcik. From the 2000 book, "Mark Stock: Paintings", by Barnaby Conrad III: "Mark Stock's paintings connect viewers to the euphoria, loneliness and sometimes fatal entanglements of romance. Often melodramatic and tinged with irony, Stock's images illustrate love's power to provoke our best - and most illicit - behavior. A well-dressed voyeur peeks through a mansion window, silent and intent on the object of his desire. Picknicking lovers lock into each other's eyes. An attractive woman smokes a cigarette as she sits next to a man's corpse, which has been rolled neatly in a carpet, ready for disposal. A butler steals a moment to treasure lipstick left on a glass by the woman who employs him. Stock's paintings tell each character's story with remarkable clarity and, in many cases, with humor. A master of the realist narrative style, Stock uses color, shadow and line to amazing effect. Details in facial inflection, body language, and background tell you there's more going on here than rapture, scandal, and dangerous liaisons. These paintings keep you coming back for another look, for clues to life's emotionally charged moments." Stock's works can be found in the permanent collections of Brooklyn Museum, Museum of Modern Art (New York and San Francisco), The Library of Congress and The National Gallery of Art.
