Decaying Pollen II by Mark Butler
Bronze and steel
Mark is fascinated by the alchemy of turning everyday objects or hand sculpted bronze forms into a precious metal. He loves to give another life to the bronze by adding colour, polishing it and highlighting the different textures and shinning with the inner glow that, in his words, no other material can match.
His latest work aims to express the fragments of remembered views and experiences built up by traveling through the artist’s local surroundings. Throughout his work Mark is a great ambassador of ecology, therefore he always tries to portray his concerns about the ecology and the fragile nature of the areas in which he travels.
