M D Hyde is a contemporary artist based in Ashbourne in the Peak District. He creates expressive abstract paintings using acrylic on canvas. His work is about life as a person living with depression, those around him, and his place in the world; the highs, the lows – love, loss, mood, isolation, place and belonging, since being diagnosed with cyclic depression at the age of 30
Through his paintings, M D Hyde wants to bring a better understanding and acceptance of the issues surrounding depression, and the difficulties for those who love them, based on his own experiences.
M D Hyde wants to explore some of these issues though the visual language he has created through his paintings.
