Join Mark Swords at his studio as he speaks about his exhibition The living and the dead at Temple Bar Gallery + Studios.
Mark Swords created theatrically staged paintings that come into being through a series of gestures that juxtapose the idea of making and unmaking. The paintings, often overwhelming in chromatic saturation and design denote the artist’s instinctive knowledge of colour.
