Mark Hollis

13 Ashley Street

Mark Hollis is a painter and digital artist that explores abstract urban landscapes.

I am currently a fine artist, Happily Living and working in the wonderful City Of Bristol. U.K

I have sold work all over the world including: USA, Europe, and Australia.

My method allows a process of using my own scanned images of earlier prepared paintings, found, and Digital Photographs.
This process can take a long time, as I spend much of the preparatory sessions, planning (the) exact positioning of objects, in relation to colour and weight.
A lot of the image structures that I use are a result from my walks in Bristol, Dartford, Thamesmead, Avonmouth, Essex, etc.
A certain Patina on concrete may take my eye, or I will obsess over an angle I find on a building, or light bouncing off a smokey mirrored, glass fronted office building.

” These works question the ideas relating to perceived memory and how, now that we all live and work surrounded by technology, we act as a viewers and memory builders. Does technology alter our traditionally ‘romantic’ view of time and history? Are our memories now paused like a stuck video frame rather than a vague image?”
