About the Author

Mark Titmarsh is a visual artist working in painting, video and writing. He is lecturer in Interdisciplinary Studies, in the School of Design, University of Technology, Sydney, Australia. His artworks are held in the collection of the National Gallery of Australia and in private collections overseas.


Mark Titmarsh is both a practitioner and a thinker. 'Expanded painting' names both a moment in the history of painting as well as a specific set of stylistic determinations. Expanded painting calls upon the resources of both philosophy and history in order that it be understood. Mark Titmarsh's response to that call has led to a book that will be indispensable for any serious discussion of painting today. -- Andrew Benjamin, Professor of Philosophy, Monash University, Australia and Professor of Philosophy and the Humanities, Kingston University, UK
Mark (playing dual roles as writer and artist) wrestles adeptly with a subject that is constantly in motion; in the process he names a new medium and creates for it a necessary new language. Expanded Painting promises to be a touchstone for scholars, artists and acolytes of colour and light. * UMag, University of Technology, Australia *
