Mark Dutcher is a painter and sculptor living and working in Los Angeles.  He has exhibited extensively in solo and group shows in Southern California and the West Coast.  His work deals with loss, memory and transformation.  Using highly symbolic  and iconic signs and imagery, Dutcher's work transcends linear narrative and takes the viewer into the realm of the intuitive and an almost dream-like poetry.
