In An Artist’s Studio: Mark Acetelli

Inspired by Joan Eardley’s remote and picturesque studio, The Watch House at Catterline near Aberdeen, I’ve been seeking out artist studios and thinking about how these spaces reflect and affect our working practices.

Venture into the studio of Mark Acetelli, an exciting, contemporary American painter who produces beautifully rich and evocative abstract and semi-abstract works.  Stick with the rather shaky camera work at the beginning – it is a lovely, exploratory interview which rewards watching and I love the neat rows of oil paints!

“We must strip away theories and preconceived ideology and have a clear mind like a child does, to paint in a pure sense of expression and wonder.” Mark Acetelli
