Description

Mark Devlin’s “Studies” Opens

February 25 in Gunn Memorial Library Stairwell Gallery

Reception February 25, 12pm-2pm

Born in Salem, Ma. in 1961, Mark first started painting seriously at the age of 10 with lessons given by watercolorist Helene (E.H.) Pierce in Amherst N.H. where he grew up. His mother was an oil painter and a continual artistic influence to this day. Mark won first prize in the Amherst Art Show in 1972 cementing a passion for painting.

In college at Columbia University in New York and Paris, his passion for art turned into architecture where he studied under and worked for, Robert A. M. Stern, Rafael Viñoly and James Stewart Polshek. Mark has worked in NYC, San Francisco, Paris and Bangkok, coming back to NYC to open his own residential architecture/interiors practice in 1995.

“As a child playing in the woods, I noticed that the light filtering through the tree canopy transformed the forest floor into its own miniaturized landscapes.  Playing with light on form and changing scale to create unique environments stimulates my thinking. The painting process further transforms the thoughts,” Mark tells us.

 

After moving to Washington Ct. in 2002, Mark began taking classes at the Washington Art Association, studying principally with Patty Keville Fogle the past 5 years.

 

Mark currently lives, practices and paints in Bethlehem CT where he finds extensive views and sharp, clear light his inspiration.
