Mark Maxwell

Concepts
The art of Mark Maxwell is created through the inspiration of the alchemical process. His canvas is copper metal, thin sheets which are heated and beaten over various surfaces. Details are replicated within the copper as it bends and stretches within the groves and cracks. The copper is then transformed using oil paints, pigments and chemical patination. His works are in private collections
and institutions including National Australia Bank and Liberty Reinsurance, Smithkline Beecham, Lexington Metropolis, London, GPS Maidenhead, One Aldwych, NMB Heller, RPS Consultancy, Serono Pharmaceuticals, Jones Lang La Salle and The Royal Palace - Riyadh.Influences
