Mark Ponsford’s delicate line drawings are controlled studies in motion, mapping fields as if seen from above. His work of wistful imagery that is not only gentle but totally captivating. His pale palette takes you to the chalk fields of West Dorset in the summer months. Mark walks the fields and coastline of West Dorset making sketches and taking notes. He then returns to his studio where he develops that imagery. The folding landscape around his West Dorset home provides the impulse for Mark Ponsford’s recent paintings, mixing recollection, observation and invention, their surfaces rolled and incised, laid with bold tracts of colour and expressive, wandering lines.
