Peter FitzGerald (Editor of CIRCA Art Magazine) said of Mark’s work,
“One of the exciting things about Mark’s paintings is that you can read the process of enquiry in the works themselves…you can see how Mark has taken different angles on the same subject matter or tried out the same painterly language on different subject matters, always with a sense of getting a better handle on ways of expressing what fascinated him in the first place…”
Mark Cullen is an Irish artist, born in Dublin in 1960, who only started painting on a full-time basis in 2003. He has successfully exhibited his paintings in numerous exhibitions throughout Ireland, most notably at the RHA annual exhibition and VUE in Dublin, the Eigse exhibition in Carlow, RUA annual exhibition in Belfast. His distinctive paintings of scenes in and around the harbours of South County Dublin, depicted in bold, strongly contrasting palette have won him a considerable following.
Mark is currently exploring as a painter the use of the technique of impasto to its limits in abstract paintings creating three dimensional like tapestry that teases the viewer to engage in their form. Other works as below depict scenes along the Dublin coastline close to his studio.
