Mark Dickson

“I am consumed with the process of sculpting: the physical act of creating by the deconstruction and reconstruction of ideas. To me, it is the struggle to reassign beauty, power and meaning to both found and raw materials and allowing these forms to exist free of the constraints of the expected norm.

Of the endless variety of media in the world, metals are my love, for their possibilities are endless. Heated, forged, cast or welded; though the metal is cold and hard, with the proper persuasion it becomes warm and alive. For me, it’s the entanglement, the heat, sweat, and smoke, the challenge of steel, and fire – I call this the romance of construction, and through this action I seek to challenge the familiar. It is my hope that the viewer will join me on this journey.”
