Undertaking is a new exhibition series exploring the connection between surfer and the sea.
Mark Leary grew up near the sea and started surfing aged six. He has since travelled the globe in search of the perfect wave.
The exhibition consists of three portraits of surfers, taken on location post their daily surf. Balanced alongside them are four abstract, painterly seascapes exploring the depth, movement and beauty of the waves and tide a surfer experiences when submerged in the water.
The exhibition is currently on show at M&C Saatchi, and will be supported with a Q&A with Head of Art Buying Sarah Williams later this month.
