Mark Tweedie

Mark Tweedie is a West Australian figurative artist whose work is characterised by themes of family, memory and ageing. He is particularly interested in exploring formative childhood years and lineage. Examining the treasured family photo album, Tweedie magnifies and recontextualises old photographs to construct emotive and haunting narratives. 

He has exhibited nationally and been a finalist in prominent art prizes including the Blake Prize (2018),the ‚ÄčKilgour Prize (2014, 2017, 2018), and was highly commended at the Sunshine Coast Art Prize (2019).
