Mark Chadwick (UK) - Abstract Fluid Painting. Acrylic on canvas
The British artist Mark Chadwick’s art practice is concerned by the use of machines in the production of an artwork. With our culture becoming more and more engaged with new technologies, Mark’s work questions the implications of handing over control of an artwork to a mechanical device. Through experimentation with using a number of crude technological devices and minimising his interaction with the decision making process. Mark’s work investigates the status of the artist and what the artwork actually is. With the actions of any machine the result of human intention, Mark uses machines to allow chance to enter the creative process, exploring ideas surrounding authorship, consciousness and interaction.
