About Mark Hill
I as born in the English lake District, living and working most of my life in London as a commercial art director. I currently live in Wellington New Zealand where I now video, film and paint. "The eyes have only to close for the world of the soul to open" - Ennead. It's incredible how a statement made so long ago is applicable yet today. The very same feeling that there is something greater to see, to learn, to understand is still inherent in this modern age. This is what Marc's work is about; an attempt to expose the essence that is too often veiled by what we accept as reality. The pressures and fast pace of life denies us the time or even the inclination to look, let alone endeavour to look beyond. Marc's landscapes give us a glimpse of what the soul sees. Whether its in the quality of light, the formation of the cloud or the general atmosphere of the entire piece, his paintings offer an insight which is hard to photograph, film, or even describe in words.
