Hi, My name is Alice Russell and I am currently studying for my Art and Design A-Level at KEVI, Morpeth. We have been given the task of writing a personal study on an artist. As I was enthralled by Mark Demsteader's work; his use of tone, light and texture; I decided to complete my study on him
I first saw Mark Demsteader's work when I was looking on a website: Art Group. Demsteader's work and his natural looking emotive pictures immediately captivated me.
Demsteader creates a powerful portrayal of the human body in pure, assured lines of charcoal and gouache. His work has sparked a new interest in traditional life drawing. Demsteader's vast technical ability is reflected in the natural sensitivity with which he imbues each of his pieces. Although secluded in the picture plane, each model seems to live and breathe; their expression and poise convey a sense of narrative that invites the viewer to ask more questions about them.
Mark Demsteader was born in 1963 in Manchester where he still lives and works. He studied at Rochdale College and Oldham College before taking up a postgraduate position at the Slade School
