Public Participation Portrait Painting

So much of what we see and hear is transient. It occupies us for a moment and is then either dumped or filed into the bottom draw, often only retrieved when the news of the day revives either it or a relative story.

Mark’s public participation paintings create a focus by asking questions and involving us directly. They engage us, inspire debate and bring us face to face with the subject.

Mark’s paintings are a cleverly conceived variation on painting by numbers. They democratise the process by asking us to participate in creating 8100 painted dots. The dots contrast with painted and applied surfaces to gradually reveal the subject.

We paint, participate and create.
