David Mankin is a contemporary painter of abstract landscapes based in Cornwall. A series of sell-out shows and a fast-expanding international following has generated widespread interest in how Mankin creates his evocative paintings. David Mankin: Remembering in paint explores his creative process in detail providing the reader access to the sources and influences that inform his work.

 

Reeve-Edwards investigates Mankin’s continually evolving studio practice: his sources, both external and internal, his methods, tools, and his materials. She places Mankin’s work and approach to painting within the wider context of the Action Painters and Abstract Expressionists of the mid-century, as well as exploring Mankin’s individual approach to abstract painting.

 

Through its pages the reader can gain a remarkable insight into the artist’s work, process, and his profound attachment to the Cornish landscape.
