ORIGINS
Mark Dimock
Exhibition March 17 - April 3
Opening and Artist's Talk Saturday March 17 at 3pm

New Zealand contemporary abstract artist
Mark has been living and working in Eketahuna since 1980 where he has established a large studio workshop and gallery. He has had over 20 solo exhibitions in galleries throughout New Zealand including Wellington, Auckland, Christchurch, Palmerston North, Whangarei, and Masterton, and has been part of many group shows. Mark's practice is governed by the search for original imagery and a highly technical approach to his painting style. Early influences were the cubists such as Gerorge Braque, Pablo Picasso and Juan Gris.

'In the early 80’s I started experimenting with buckling my paintings and coating them with a thick layer of resin. This created a layer of light over the painting.
In the early 2000 ‘s my style changed dramatically. I started painting on rough sawn totara boards. I wanted a raw look with influences from primitive and ancient cultures such as Egyptian and Native American art. Still interested in the reflections of light playing a part in the work, I inlaid polished steel and in later works aluminium, copper and brass. I have included a few of these origin pieces in this exhibition; the recent works done in 2018 are reworkings from that early 2000 period.'
