Malcolm Barton

My work is a response to the complex array of visual stimuli that I experience aesthetically in the world around me. The desire to capture and communicate these visual encounters has currently led me to adopt a representational approach but one that also attempts to add to the visual experience through the character of the marks made in the creation of the painting.

I work at a range of scales from 350mm x 250mm ‘plein air’ oils to full size portraits. I also paint using pastels over an acrylic underpainting - again deliberately aiming at a complex surface.
