Mark Johnston Abstract Paintings

" Mark Johnston is among those who believe it is still possible to say something meaningful and exciting by applying paint to canvas. He chooses to work within the long tradition of landscape painting that has flourished with particular vigour in this country. His landscapes are largely abstracted, yet there is in them the same identification with the spirit of place that permeates the great line of English landscape artists, from the Norfolk school through Turner to the St. Ives School, notably Peter Lanyon."

Influences from abroad include Rembrant and Whistler with their masterly use of light and atmospheric qualities along with more recent painters such as Cy Twombly , Antoni Tapies and Anselm Kiefer who interest Johnston with their alchemy and freedom .Mark Johnston also pays a lot of respect to the 1950’s abstract expressionists, in particular Franz Klein and his 1950–61 black and white's. “These paintings contain real force, movement and compositional strength. The raw brush strokes show true justice to materials.” Paul Tierney


In case you dont know this gentleman let me introduce him. I first heard of the Russian Moscow based Drum n Bass producer Subwave with the Rain Dance/Naked Lunch ep on the super UK Goldie label Metalheadz, a magic minimalistic tribal dubby with monster explosions of sonic blister and synth-wave soundscapes, i got my years seduced and plugged to all this amazing sounds that are poring a bit from everywhere.

Summer Holidays Highlights, Audiopleasures 4th Anniversary

Dear champs and champets, yesterday Audiopleasures turned 4 years and i've been a bit absent first cause of my summer holidays and also a bit too lazy to return to my routines, this summer was such a utopia that im still finding ways to take charge over my life.
Here are a bit of the highlights of whats happened while i was away, this year i went to Portugal by car with some friends and that was a hell of an adventure, to cross France was literally hell cause Paris was packed and the road to Bordeaux was so jammed that took us almost 12 hours to get to Bilbao, the rest was piece of cake, spend 3 insanely awesome weeks with my friends on beautiful beaches with gorgeous blue sky's and water, starry nights like we dont see so often any more and was in Vila Nogueira de Azeitão my place of birth, Setubal, Lisbon, Oporto, Leon, Bilbao and San Sebastian that is so gorgeous. After getting back to Holland had some of the best party's of the year waiting, Double party with Sex Beet in Club Tarantula summer edition and at Pacific Park, the all Dutch stars in my favorite place in Holland the "Phoenix 13" in Haarlem. stay tuned for the return of Audiopleasures, love to all, T.
