Mark Burrell

Mark is a leading member of The North Sea Magical Realists. Marks Imagined stories exist throughout the work, but these stories do not need to be understood to be enjoyed, because they are full of feeling atmosphere and colour (a place of light and shadow, subtle and mysterious).

One is reminded of old stained glass windows as light seems to shine out of some of the paintings in the form of sunsets, full moons or some magical source. Some of the paintings depict parts of fairgrounds and circus folk, although imaginary, they do seem like real people, with real life concerns behind the masks and props of a circus life. There is no doubt that the work has a magical quality but there is also something of our own lives, struggles, and hopes in these paintings too.
