Mark Godwin

Mark Godwin

The motif of Landscape has been a major part of the work of Mark Godwin for over 30 years. He has been greatly influenced by the 18th century Romantic notion of the Sublime, and our longing for an emotional encounter with nature.

These paintings are about finding a visual equivalent for his sensation before nature. They are paintings about the poetic idea of landscape. There is a nostalgia, and timelessness about his work, and a conscious blurring of the boundaries between abstraction, and representation. They are landscape of the imagination. They are paintings about feelings.

Mark Godwin began his artist training at Stourbridge College of Art and progressed on to Central School of Art, the Royal College of Art and Cite Internationale des Artistes in Paris. Following his training Mark went onto work as a copperplate printer for Palm Tree Editions, Albion Editions and London Contemporary Art.

Since then Mark has set up his own studio to develop his practice concentrating on painting and printing. He has exhibited extensively and his work has been included in many collections both private and corporate.

We were so keen to launch our Artist Directory we have decided to launch the first phase in advance of the costing and portfolio generation section.

In this first phase we have included a diverse selection of artists we collaborate with.

Over the coming months this selection will continue to grow eventually to include all of our artists.

In the near future our artwork selection, frame visualisation and costing database will come on-line.

This will allow the selection of artworks and frames, see a visualisation of the framed artwork and include this in a portfolio for purchase.

If you would like further information about this artist or their available artworks please complete this form and we will get back to you as soon as we can.
