John Stark is known for his highly laboured oil paintings which for the past decade have served as conduits to explore a universe of interconnected ideas. Stark have investigated themes including witchcraft, warfare, alchemy, apiculture, shamanism and imperialism.

Stark’s paintings could be viewed as a kind of ideological battleground where binary oppositions such as light and dark; animus and anima; cruelty and desire; control and abandonment; violence and transformation vie for territorial gain over the other. (source)

“Being a painter and dealing with historical painting, you have to somehow deal with these ideas of religion and the spiritual, so I guess
I see these narratives replacing the old ones.”
