Mark Beattie - Orb Ref M153

Mark Beattie - Orb Ref M153


2015, Painted copper and coloured aluminium, 20x25x20cm

'This Orb was created as part of a body of work. With Orb (Ref. M153) I tried something new and placed coloured aluminium in the gaps between the copper tube; this gives the impression of the coloured wire running throughout the whole sculpture. It was this sculpture that inspired me to work with more colours and in different ways.'

Mark Beattie's work is inspired by his travels; he draws on the experiences of different countries and cultures and a feeling of displacement and separation that comes with travelling. Working with various metals in all their contrasting properties of texture and finish, Mark enjoys the challenge of making the industrious material appear fluid, malleable and delicate.
