Mark Butler

Sculpture is a passion for Mark, and discovering that he could cast bronze in his back garden opened up a world of opportunities to make beautiful works of art. There is an alchemy in turning everyday objects or hand sculpted forms into a precious metal. In its raw state bronze is not that interesting, but add colour and polish it, and it takes on a new life, highlighting the different textures and shining with an inner glow that no other material can match.

Mark's Influences often have a scientific background, in the amazing forms that can be found in the microscopic world and their unseen influence on our world, or the layering of mapping information onto a landscape. His aim is to pass on the wonder of the unseen and unknown through his work.
