Mark Charlton is a Brighton based artist who produces mixed media abstract paintings and prints. His art explores a futuristic vision of space exploration from the perspective of the 1950s telling a story through a stylised visual language....

About

Mark Charlton's work is a mixed media, abstract combination of screen print, painting and collage freely allowing the exploration of surface texture and graphical composition. The work is energetic and spontaneous using multiple layers, which are built up over a substantial period of time until a final composition is realised and refined.  He finds a unique excitement in this layered approach which sees screen print forced to react with painted and collaged surfaces.  Multiple techniques are used to decay and age the surface, which culminates in a final piece that has a striking first impression and a gentle beauty within its close up detail. Works created are not only meant as a piece of art solely made for display purposes but also represent the excitement of a found unearthed archaeological relic that has been discovered with its own history and sense of use...
