Few artists are able to capture the diversity of our world and contemporary life with such vitality and grace. The technical ability of this great artist enables him to implement the concepts of Impressionism in a great variety of themes and settings. Mark King is able to transport us to any venue with such thoroughness that we feel the summer breezes in the South of France, or the dampness of a spring shower in Paris. Savoring this compilation of work by Mark King, we are convinced that it is possible to merge the trappings of modern man with those of nature. King is the rare artist who can capture the activity of a sunlit Parisian street, the vigor of skiers on a powdery slope, as well as the simple tranquility of a mountain forest. King has a keen eye for the elements which compose an activity or scene and is readily able to transcribe this information on to dramatically beautiful canvases. Focusing not just on the action or setting, but the mood, Mark King is an artist who transcends the immediate and captures the essence of experience.
