MARK HAYNES


Mark was born in 1956 on the south coast of England and first began to find an interest in art after being commissioned to do a series of illustrative works for the BBC at the age of sixteen. Art quickly became Markís passion and at the age of 20 he travelled to India, Nepal and the Far East, exploring art and culture. His attitude to painting changed greatly during his 8 years in Japan, where he studied with artists of a wide variety of media. Mark was stimulated with the culture of Japan which developed his trademark style of perfectly balanced colour and shape. This is reflected in his works of Cubism and Abstract Expressionism. Mark still divides his time between England and Japan, where he has held many selling exhibitions. ďI think a painting should make you feel something and not just be a technical process. Once you get a technical process perfected you canít grow. In my opinion, Picasso is the greatest artist as you can see his progression, his creativity that was ever changing. I feel a picture should have a depth of richness, itís not just the surface of a painting, itís whatís underneath it, how itís built up into the vehicle that gives you a feeling. Over the past 40 years I have been painting, mostly every day. My works started with fine art, watercolours and landscapes, later developing into a more abstracted style, influenced by Cubism and Abstract Expressionism. And that is what art is, it is a creative progression, you have a starting place then inspiration takes you on a journey, and through that journey you discover who you are as an artist. It took me 30 years to find out who I want to be as an artist, and 10 years to shift me slightly closer to my never ending progression. In my case, itís down to colour, balance and shape. Iíve always felt it doesnít matter what you paint, itís how you paint it and how itís put on a canvas to express feelings in shape and colour. In the past, I would start a piece with an image in mind, but as time has passed Iíve learned to start my piece with an idea in mind.Ē
