Mark James Minty _ New Small Works 2021

Mark James is an artist and designer working in Northcote, Australia. His work is confidently grounded in gestural abstraction where he finds inspiration and delight.

With constant and thorough observations of his surroundings, Mark James transposes onto canvas, wood or paper his most intimate thoughts and feelings using paint, ink, crayon and pencil along with sanding, scratching, scrubbing – removing then reapplying media until satisfied that each work expresses exactly what he wishes it to. The titles of each picture are a clear indication of of the deep desire to express one human’s emotion.
