Mark Gordon

Mark Gordon’s work is deeply evocative of time and place. With a deft use of light and colour he possesses an almost uncanny ability to draw out the memories and past lives of those who once inhabited the spaces within his paintings.

In his recent work, by skilfully combining the ancient technique of encaustic painting (involving adding pigments to hot beeswax), with the contemporary practices of photography and collage, Mark creates nostalgic and brooding compositions.

Mark studied at the Ruskin School of drawing and painting in Oxford and has more recently exhibited at the National Trust properties of Calke Abbey and Elvaston Castle in Derbyshire.

He is an artist of real depth and talent who invites us to see the world through his eyes and gives great reward for having done so.
