Hello, my name is Mark Wheatley aka Marko. My artwork encompasses a variety of working methods including painting, printmaking, sculpture, zine making and textiles. I am intrigued by the balance of order and improvisation, some aspects are planned and a certain amount is down to spontaneity and feeling. Central to my working method is the act of play. Play enables an engagement in the moment relying on intuition and most importantly freedom, allowing ideas to flow and develop. Exploring shape, colour, form and composition, I am continually striving towards a pared down simplicity and directness.
