Mark Flickinger

Painting always begins as a response. Outside in the light and air, full of every detail and movement, I at once find and lose myself.

It is important for me to be in the landscape and experience the light, weather, and changing nature of the place.  I paint studies in Situ.  These include oil studies, drawings, watercolors, photographs, and journals.  When possible, I collect rock and plant samples from these locations.  Upon returning to the studio, I will develop the finished paintings.

Eventually I setting these things aside, I complete the painting leaning heavily on memory

Ultimately, I love color, paint, texture, space, air, and light.  I have a compulsion to paintand bein these places.  I cannot separate my need to transcribe these experiences of place from the experience of painting itself.

My most recent work is centered on the search for the Sublime, Iconic, American vista and how painting becomes a way of understanding it.
