Extended Bio
Mark has been living and working in Devon as an artist since 1998. He has held over thirty exhibitions and sold paintings to collectors from America to India. Starting as a watercolourist, painting small intense landscapes, over the years he has moved to working in oil and more recently acrylic, allowing a fast spontaneous style that captures the light and atmospheric quality of Exmoor. Water and the interaction of light upon it holds a particular fascination, and features in many of his works. Rivers also have the element of the journey, a new view around each bend, drawing you on, and prove endlessly fascinating material for the artist. There is a powerful connection to life and our absolute need for water that links us all to this element. It is also used as a metaphor for life, from birth to death, and forms a profound part of our ancestry
Bio
Exmoor and the Severn Sea. The wild moors and wild coastal edge of the Bristol Channel are the focus of my 2024 project. Mixed media painting from the figurative to the abstract, capturing the elemental nature of wilderness, atmosphere, light and weather. Accompanied by sound art of field recordings and instrumentation combined to form a musical narrative.
