Art Forms in Nature

Mark is a sculptor working mainly in cast bronze. Although he is using metal – a markedly permanent material – he harnesses chance to create imperfect and fractured pieces, mirroring the impermanence and vulnerability of the environment around him.

Influences often have a landscape or scientific background, looking at the layers of information available about a location, or the amazing forms that can be found in the microscopic world and their unseen influence on our world.

Based in the Yorkshire Dales, Mark casts all his own work and has a degree in Creative Arts. He currently exhibits at art shows and galleries across the North of England.

On 1st January 2022, Mark started a creative challenge to make 100 new artworks, making a new clay design every day for the first 100 days of the year. Posting images of these creations on Instagram, he invited viewers to contribute words inspired by these pieces. After casting the pieces in bronze, he then combined these with one of the selected texts to create 100 new pieces of art for the exhibition.
