With the structure of the building as a starting point, the windows serve as eyes and are colored black. Some sort of black dripping tears emerge from them and remind of a certain materiality of paint, as well dripping. Frowned and red eyebrows and lips give color to the building, of which its entire surface is used. This personified sad building, titled ‘The crying house’ is the result of Mark Gmehlings work at the meeting of styles 2018. It appears to be a ghostly figure, lining up with his other plastic creations and with the fluent lining resembling his 3D works.
