Marcus Hammond is a painter based in North Yorkshire. He studied Fine Art at Manchester Metropolitan University and has exhibited widely since 1992 in London and more recently in Yorkshire.
Marcus creates abstracted mixed-media pieces. He paints using his instinct rather than with a pre-planned idea, more concerned about his physical response rather than actual representation of place. This 'process' results in multi-layered compositions comprising of thick paint in places juxtaposed with the removal of certain layers in others to reveal previously made gestures underneath.
