“Gold in Silver Orb I” is made from one continuous copper tube; with no obvious beginning or end. Beattie enjoys the challenge of making a flowing form out of metal and then contrasting two finishes, such as this example with gold and nickel.
Mark Beattie is a London based sculptor, whose work has been exhibited internationally alongside artists such as Tracey Emin, the late Lynn Chadwick, Helaine Blumenfeld and Jonathan Yeo.
Working with various metals in all their contrasting properties of texture and finish, Beattie can make industrial metal appear fluid, malleable and delicate. He continues to study different metals, looking for ways to manipulate and add movement to material, and over the past 18 months has been developing ways in which neon or LEDs can complement sculpture, adding movement and catching the viewer’s eye.
