MARK TENNANT 

Body painting, timeless ...

How not to be attracted to the solitude of this woman or look seems absent, so strange at a time ... The painting by Mark Tennant demonstrates his investment in the issue of women in the twenty-first century. The suffering of this woman is unbearable! In this painting, the scene of a bloody body, takes us back to a theme that is universal, today and tomorrow !!!

Artist Mark Tennant takes head on the subject, this subject is part of our history, the history of painting as a commitment of the artist instrument ...

The pictorial key Mark Tennant has become an ultra-fast button where you feel a state of emergency, to translate the most real emotions of the subject. It lets us see the human body in a depletion phase between two forms of life ... And quietly insists Mark Tennant, year after year by driving the nail undaunted. He devoted himself to the point, the oil painting in all its vitality, the combinatorial its thousand textures, rough or creamy, glossy or matte. About the body, often the female body, it reflects and represents a new reality through the mirror of our times, mirror of our reality. Mark Tennant is also a painter assumptions, it is not sure, but here it gives us a proposal that we have, whether it is for us to find a solution, and this solution is a contemporary must pictorial.
