Marc Yeats is one of Britainís acclaimed contemporary classical composers and visual artists, specialising in abstract landscape painting.
His initial painting technique was photo-realistic. Marc created imaginary rural idylls based on old images from books and magazines.
Between the ages of sixteen and twenty-four, Marc's need for new subject material led him to want to paint real places rather than the imaginary rural composition he had formerly created.
But Marc reached a point from which he felt he could no longer develop. Although his work sold well and was of the highest quality, he felt dissatisfaction with the constraints of painting exactly what he saw and being limited by the technical and expressive constraints of photo-realism.
Marc moved to Scotland. This change enabled Marc to make significant breakthroughs in his painting technique and gradually move away from representational painting into the world of abstraction.
From the late 1980s through to the present day, Marc has developed and explored his techniques of abstraction. Whilst his work is still based on landscape and the structures and atmospheres to be experienced within it, his paintings have become increasingly less reliant on familiar colour, textural and structural configurations.
