LUCY MARKS


Big Skies, Land and Sea
4 April - 4 May 2019


'Pale Moon's Quiet' - Watercolour on Saunders Waterford paper (104 x 104 cm)


Lucy Marks is a contemporary landscape painter working in oil and watercolour. Her dynamic compositions communicate the changing energy and movement within the landscape. Her unique, instinctive approach captures a feeling of place through her works, creating a sensory and emotive experience which encourages an exploration of memories and subliminal perceptions of the landscape. Lucy’s works are recognisable by their highly textural nature, generated through a combination of painterly mark-making, layering and the application of found materials directly onto the canvas. She uses Watercolour in innovative and bold ways.  Lucy holds an MA in Fine Art from Brighton University and has participated in numerous group shows. She has also won two awards through The Artist and Leisure Painter Open Exhibition, Calverton (2017, 2018).
