Mark Beattie - Orb Ref M155

Mark Beattie - Orb Ref M155


2015, Painted copper, 22x22x22cm

Orb (Ref.155) was created in early 2015 as part of a new body of work. This Orb is made from different thicknesses of copper wire and tube producing a contrast in weight and density. The bright green wire adds a sporadic movement to the work. The work was created as a marquette for a larger work, which is currently being made.'

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.
