Mark Lockton is a multi-talented artist who works across a wide range of media. Mark is inspired by visiting exhibitions, family life and collaborating with other artists. Across his practice, Mark continually seeks new ways to create visual impact, whether through painting, drawing, weaving, collage or woodwork.
With a strong vision for the finished product, Mark also has a deep engagement with process. He often dedicates himself to completing all elements of a piece from start to finish, as in his self-framed paintings. Mark also enjoys challenging himself though major projects undertaken over a number of months, such as the creation of full-sized blankets from hand-knitting yarn.
Across his wide-ranging practice, Mark works meticulously to finish each project before moving on to the next. Mark Lockton is an enthusiastic collaborator, often working with other members of the collective to develop his skills and achieve the scale, impact and detailed finish he insists on in his work.
