Mark Rowan-Hull - Performance Painting

Mark Rowan-Hull - Performance Painting

Mark explores 'the invigorating ephemeral qualities of visual art and the encapsulating of time in Music via performance'.  He creates and performs painting responding to music.  

"In order to publicise his ideas of visualising music Mark embarked on a series of exciting performances and events involving painting live on stage responding to music by composers such as Messiaen, Scriabin, Debussy, Shostakovich and George Crumb together with Jazz and improvisation. These performances took place in a wide variety of settings including the Royal Academy of Music, Royal Festival Hall, Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral and Ronnie Scott’s Jazz club.
