Christmas Exhibition 2022 - Mark Surridge

Mark Surridge’s paintings often suggest archaeology - revealing traces, signs and codes, remembered and then transformed into works of ‘equivalence of experience’. He uses GPS technology to map where he is on Earth, then in the studio he imagines what these shapes would look like as a walk mapped on the terrain. He uses the principles of the palimpsest to look at the world, where the most distant layers are  partially erased by the ones in front, and the landscape can be seen as a series of  pictorial or metaphorical elements.
