“There is a whole universe out there, and another one inside – the Landscapes of the mind fascinate me. I seem to drift in and out of these atmospheric images as I paint. There are often no solid objects, because that implies a physical connection. I wander through these layers in my mind as I paint, and each painting takes it’s own course. I try to use transparent layers to explain these images, so there are no solid objects and the depth is infinite.
Other paintings have their quiet messages. Paintings are like a diary to me, just as my sketch book is. They record fleeting moments, moods, impressions and lifelong passions, and everyone of them is as important to me as breathing.” – Mark Wilson
