I like the idea of finding a new form of expression, an original language with paint that is in dialogue with artists of the past and present.
My work is extremely physical, each painting has layer upon layer of marks, painted out colour and re-worked imagery. The works are all created out of a need and desire to see work that personally satisfies me as a painter - Marcus Boelen.
Born 1973 in Norwich England, Marcus lives in Kingscliff, northern New South Wales. Self-taught, he quit every art school he studied at to follow his own path. It’s a path that sees him paint from the soul, with ongoing exhibitions and a recent invitation to exhibit in a group shows in London and Los Angeles.
