Mark Lomax merges the disciplines of painting, drawing and sculpture in an extraordinary way. The surface treatment of slablike panels is both rough and exquisitely intricate, with a matt texture reminiscent of concrete, charcoal and plaster. There is also interplay between intentional and accidental or "natural" marks on the surface that is intriguing. A sense of hidden weight in a series of often delicate textures creates a work of real presence. Without any direct subject matter or colour to draw the eye the outcome is unexpectedly mesmerising.
