About My Work:
Mark creates abstract sculptures using various metals and ranging in size from miniature to monumental. Each sculpture is unique and finished in a way that is sensitive to the material. He has developed a signature style through which his sculptures contain movement and fluidity. Mark has recently started using neon which works in harmony with his metalwork and has added a sense of energy to his practice.
