Mark Chadwick is a master of explosive, liquid paintings and creator of mechanical paintings made by machines.
So where does the role of the artist stop, and technology or chance take over? Chadwick says he's always the one making the decisions, even if the decision is to allow gravity to play…Show more with the paint. His fluid and spin paintings are made using natural and mechanical forces, plus chance. Some paintings are spun or shaken, while others rely upon the way materials react with each other, or the simple forces of nature. The result is a series of unique abstract works that appear random, yet capture something we recognise easily: a machine-driven process. It's unsurprising to discover that Chadwick is also inspired by nature. Lava flow and the Northern Lights are key inspirations.
These works are bold, bright and full of movement. Layers of colour form a shifting surface that appears to be in a constant state of flux. It's clear that the ideas still flow from the artist.Show less
"The works of Mark Chadwick reference many of the British YBAs including Damien Hirst and his spin works. What sets Marks work apart however, is the composition of the works and layers of materials. I love the texture and how the paint literally drips from the canvas. Coming in different sizes, these works are affordable on any budget."
