About the process…

“My work is the evolution of building up layers of media substrate and removing surface topography over time. The piece is finished when both addition and subtraction of paint from the artwork form a harmonious blend of texture and color.”

“The objective is to create art that has dynamic shape and form with colors constantly changing. In so doing they appear multifarious with each viewing.”


Kansas City based artist and graphic designer, Mark Hennick enjoys the process of specifying color, building composition and observing the outcome. Through his abstract works, Hennick explores using nontraditional tools and new techniques for painting. His meditation and yoga praxis helps to inspire the images he creates.

Hennick has exhibited throughout the Kansas City area and shows his artworks in many art fairs and galleries. He lives in the Kansas City River Market and his studio is in the West Bottoms. If you are drawn to colorful abstract imagery, Hennick’s works are a must-see.
