Café Bar Gallery
Mark Jessett is an abstract artist based in Ashburton, Devon. His work encompasses drawing, painting and collage. In recent years, he has concentrated on making works on paper.
Exploring relationships between colour, surface texture, translucency and opacity, Mark makes images that offer bold, simple shapes on first sight, underpinned by considerable detail and depth when viewed more closely. A limited family of forms provide the basis for the works, whose inspiration comes from graphic design, folklore and the made environment.
Mark studied Fine Art at Goldsmiths’ College and is co-founder of N|E|W Art in Ashburton. He has been professionally involved with paper for over fifteen years and he currently works as a consultant with G . F Smith, the UK’s leading specialist paper supplier.
