Art work Description:
Mark Johnston was born in the North East of England, and spent his childhood by the sea and in the country. Painting took him to the Lake District and then to Brighton University. Three years later after graduating with a B.A. (Hons) degree in Painting he was awarded the Sussex Painting Prize. For the next two years he travelled, lived and painted in Greece, Barcelona and Andalusia, before returning to the South Coast of England where he has worked and lived since. “I put a lot of importance on not over-doing work or making it too photographic, ambiguity is part of what gives them their power. It is the process of painting that is the real buzz. Whether I am painting mountains or coast, once a piece is under way I react immediately and instinctively to keep it alive, conscious of what the painting is doing as well as what I want the paint to do. The end sneaks up on me once all of a sudden the painting has a mystique and soul of its own.” Mark Johnston
