I became aware of Mark Shattock when I saw and bought one of his paintings in a local gallery.  He uses thick oil paint in gestural brushstrokes and is just what we were looking for to complement our other artists' work. The best way to talk about Mark's beautiful work is to let him describe it himself:

I paint mostly from first hand observation using sketches and photography as a basis for my paintings. I generally undertake these works in my studio and my preferred medium is oil paints on canvas board or prepared MDF.

My paintings are all about my own relationship, and of those observed, with an environment. I aim to capture the colour, dynamism and emotion that a particular scene and instance evokes. Distilling the essence of this imagery with colour, hue and mark-making is the main focus of my artwork. I hope to create a sense of engagement and nostalgia with the viewer with each work which is both familiar and empathic.

How I respond to a given scene is something I find both fascinating and intriguing. Images that are instantly recognisable and resonate captivate me, such as capturing human engagement, or relaxation, with the surroundings. The light, colour and movement where the land meets the sea is a recurring theme.

My current artistic journey is taking this imagery as a foundation, refining and simplifying the elements using colour and tone to capture and evoke that moment in time and the emotion experienced. The process is always a challenging and enjoyable one.
