Mark Beatty

Dining Hall, Trinity College

Mark Beatty’s drawings are the combination of many small individual lines and shapes which accumulate to create an overall image. Each mark is a building block to an unknown outcome that is only realized once the artist has finished the piece. With this meditative approach, the work grows slowly as the artist concentrates on adding each tiny mark. Beatty says his work “is alive while it is being processed and a relic when it is complete” suggesting the intrinsic importance of the act of drawing to his practice.
