Mark Beatty is a Dublin based artist, who’s work focuses on pen and paper, and is strongly dependant on the creation of lines, which grow slowly and organically towards and unknown outcome. The intention of such a timely linear process is too occupy the present with an activity, a practice. The resulting work becomes a document of Beatty’s handling of time. Previous exhibitions include the Square Root of Drawing at Temple Bar Gallery 2006 and Open Systems at the Green on Red 2007.
A painting graduate of the National College of Art Design, I have shown work in various group shows in galleries and at independent locations in Ireland and overseas. Currently based in West Cork, I had my first solo show in the Clonakilty Arts Centre In 2016. My work uses drawing practice to give value
to deliberately slowing down- I see it as quiet protest against the business of contemporary life.
