Mark Wooller produces oil paintings in a semi surrealist style featuring the New Zealand bush and landscape. His process begins with researching the history of an area or motif in detail before he picks up his paint brush. In each of his works you will find details of this process with references to a multitude of artefacts, documentation and other historicalrecords. Such artefacts include surveyors’ maps, land transfer documents, stamps, early tobacco tins and even a wooden and brass ruler discovered plumbed in to a wall in his1930’s Bungalow.
Wooller has established a unique and original style, a comprehensive portfolio of work and a genuine commitment to his research and artistic practice.
