The Artist - Mark Wiggin
My paintings are inspired by our beautiful Devon landscape. The ever-changing colours, patterns and shapes are irresistible. I work from photographs, sketches and memory to create vibrant messages of hope based on what I have seen and experienced. I choose to use oil paint applied boldly using a palette knife. I love the expressive marks made by the palette knife which bring my composition to life. The technique allows me a freedom which is spontaneous, fun and dynamic; a technique which is full of interesting challenges.
