Mark Andres is a multimedia artist fluent in drawing, painting, animation and film. Stylistically, his color pallet evokes comparisons to Fauvism, and his work certainly pays some tribute to German Expressionism.
The paintings are a product of an experiential process where, in his words, “the mysterious rhythms of the place resonate in my body”. His intention is to communicate the freshness, excitement and brevity of his first glimpse and initial experience of a place. He is keen to qualify that this is no Impressionist manifesto, explaining, “the rhythms I refer to are also abstract and graphic, not just about the fleeting effects of light.”
