Three Themes by Mark Howard: Extinction, Birds and Paris
Until 31st January 2022
“I trained in 3-dimensional design in the early 1980s and graduated as a ceramics specialist. An 18-month contract with an arts based community programme gave way to the real life experience of needing to earn regular money to bring up a family. And so, a 31 year career as a civil servant ensued! During which time, I painted many pet portraits for friends and colleagues. The kids are grown up now and the mortgage is paid off so I took early retirement to spend time painting the things that are important to me.
There have been three main themes to my paintings over the last 3 years. Probably the most worthy of which has been trying to bring to the focus of everyone who sees my work, the plight of thousands of species of animals in the world that face extinction within our lifetime through both climate change and the ignorance and indifference of those businesses that seek to capitalise on their habitat. I try to learn something about everything I paint to help me have a respect for the subject. I hope that this shows in my paintings”
