Artists Statement

Artists Statement

Each piece of work by Mark Smith draws inspiration from the sea, and each as it's own unique appearance and story to tell.
Objects found on travels or by shoreline often become part of the work.
Mark uses a variety of techniques to achieve the finished look of a piece, focusing mainly on decay and repair.
The work is constantly changing due to the materials found, each piece can never be replicated.
Ships, boats, wrecks, beach huts and houses are the main focus of the work, all textured with raised and indented objects that have an indication of our industrial past.
