  "The Mosque Of Wadi Mektoub"

 

 The Mosque Of Wadi Mektoub

           "The Mosque Of Wadi Mektoub" by Mark Harrison

 

A father and his daughter have pitched their tent overnight by the mosque of Wadi Mektoub, a famous shrine deep in the desert. Their boat is moored in the tranquil river with their rowing boat pulled up on the riverbank, a fire burns in front of the tent for the daughter to cook some food as well as to ward off the chill of a desert night. Perhaps they are on a pilgrimage to the shrine, perhaps they are just passing through. Due to the good response to "Departure Of The Bash Kadin" and due to it selling so early I felt that it would make sense to paint a similar one as I felt that "Bash Kadin" could have sold to another collector at the upcoming Illuxcon where this painting is heading. These Orientalist paintings are very much fantasies in that I paint them as a Middle Eastern scene would be depicted in a Hollywood movie like Indiana Jones for example i.e. impossible juxtapositions of Middle Eastern elements that somehow relate to Western peoples' fantasy of Arabian Nights-style scenes and situations. I also give them cod-Orientalist titles as a nod to the original inspiration of Victorian era paintings by Gérome etc etc. A big influence on this picture is the work of Albert Goodwin. Wadi Mektoub does not exist; a wadi (in the Maghreb for instance) is a river and Mektoub is Arabic for happy happenstance like the Turkish word, Kismet.

 

 

 

............. BY THE INTERNATIONALLY ACCLAIMED AWARD WINNING ARTIST MARK HARRISON!!!!

 

 

 

Stunning Atmospheric Oil paintings by Award winning Artist Mark Harrison of British landscape, Venice, London, New York, S.E Asia, Bali and beyond. Mark Harrison was an extremely successful professional illustrator painting nearly 500 book jackets for most major UK & USA Publishers and winning a number of Awards!! Mark is well known in science fiction and fantasy genres!!

 

Over 500 Book cover illustrations!!!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Feeling constricted by the demands of  illustration in 2003 Mark devotes all his time to painting  for sale in fine Art Galleries!!!!

 

 

 

 

 

Mark Harrison now paints mainly in oil on board. Many paintings focus on atmospheric landscapes and cityscapes, mainly London, New York and Venice, but he has also developed a more idiosyncratic style and content, reflecting an interest in more elusively symbolic and surreal subject matter. Most recently Harrison has developed an interest in plein air painting: landscapes started in acrylic on location and finished in oil in the studio.

 

 

Mark Harrison exhibits regularly at the London Affordable Art Fair, Art in Action and at various UK galleries. His paintings have been accepted for the Pastel Society Open Exhibition (2005 & 2006), the Royal Society of British Artists (2008) and the Royal Institute of Oil Painters (2008 & 2010).

 

 

His work is often featured in magazines, including Artists & Illustrators (2009) and International Artist (2006 & 2011). He was a finalist in the International Artist Landscape Challenge (Feb/Mar 2011) with his plein air painting, ‘Flax field from Cissbury Ring’.
