Mark Hearld.

September 17, 2011

Right image from Maraid on Flickr taken in Marks’ Open Studio Exhibition.

I try to keep up to date, whenever possible with artists’ whose work continues to inspire and amaze me.

Mark Hearld is one of those artists and I discovered that he has recently completed commissions for

Faber & Faber and Tate Museums (of which I have a lovely mug) like the one featured here.

I’ve found a few images on the internet for posters etc that I’ve not seen before.

Apparently A children’s book illustrated by a series of Mark’s unique collages will be published

by Walker Books in 2012, something, no doubt, we will all be looking forward to.

A few more of Marks more recent collage pieces can be seen here along with a Wooden Cockerill, part

of a collaborative piece.  There’s a lovely image of Mark and Illustrator Emily Sutton below too.

As a entrant for the Elle Decoration British Design Awards 2011, Emily’s design “Curiosity Shop” has

been shortlisted, please help by adding your votes for it to win here. Both Emily and Marks fabrics are

available from the lovely people at St Judes Fabrics here.  I think it’s time for a book of Marks’ own

work to be gracing the shelves, anyone else agree with me ?

Also new out some lovely Bird cards, check them out here, from Art Angels.

More older blogs about Mr Hearlds’ work here, here, here, here, here, oh and here .

Did I mention that I liked his work again !

    The poster ‘Mark Hearld and Friends’ at the top of the blog was made for Mark’s collaborative show at The Scottish Gallery in 2009. We hosted a fantastic solo show in 2010, which despite the Decemeber snow, was a sell out!

    Now we are looking forward to having Emily Sutton’s first exhibition of paintings and prints in the gallery in December 2011. Watch this space….

She is also doing a Christmas card for the charity Paintings in Hospitals whereby all proceeds from the sale of the cards go to the charity, these will be available to purchase in November. B

    I too love love love this guy’s work! A completely unique voice and he seems like a truly nice bloke too. There was a wonderful article about him in World of Interiors magazine which I read when we were on holiday – well worth a look if you can find out when it was from.
