(by the artist)
Mark Ewenson

It takes a good painter to convey his vision into our consciousness. As we travel through the painter's landscapes or map his faces, they return to us as in a reverie. This leaves us wondering whether the artist has captured the essence of the life scape, or whether it is he who has been captured. Abstracts, flowers, interiors, rivers, figures, faces, bush........

The freedom, loveliness and conviction of his line is the stream which flows through the course of all his subjects. This is innately Ewenson.

- Neil Douglas, MBE Art and Conservation (1997)
