Green Chair Gallery* Exhibition

11 November–15 December 2017

Marcus Bolt

Marcus has always painted and taken photographs in his spare time, and has had 5 exhibitions of his work in London, Windsor and Radlett.
Marcus is widowed, has two daughters and 4 grandchildren and currently lives and works in Bristol. Now approaching retirement, Marcus is planning to become a full time painter, working with acrylics on stretched canvas, and exploring further the genre of still life.

Over the past few years, still life painting has fascinated me more and more. Studying the Dutch, Italian and French masters of the genre, and allying their techniques to my own, more graphic approach, has enabled me to put aesthetic rather than illustrative concerns as the primary motivator. Thus, each painting is a design, using everyday objects as a starting point.
