Mark Surridge’s paintings have a lyrical and ephemeral quality of light and form that immediately engages the eye. The Cornish landscape and its weather systems is one subject of interest, but this is only a starting point. Surridge studies the landscape not for its own sake as a retrogressive representational source, but sets out to look beyond it to elicit a simplification of form, resulting in the creation of a painting which lives as an object in its own right.
