Mark Stammers - Public Art / Sculpture / Painting
Born in Surrey, discovering art & craft in father's workshop and from local artists, "I started a civil engineering degree at Coventry University, but the brilliant art library and conversation and friendships with art students pulled me back to painting. Ten years on, lecturers and close friends helped me see my art and painting in new ways. I went on to make sculpture drawings, while making art in the community, tutoring and devising workshops, discovering different cultures and people, alongside making and evolving my own painting and sculpture."
Inspired by abstract art, philosophical enquiry and the existential, making questioning art, often coming from the unusual poetic resonances found in events and objects of day to day living.
Relating to identity, people & place - & beyond, to boundaries of the mind & heart, by colour, light and meaning: Affinities with art relating to a super consciousness of time space & energy, signing the eternal.
I create public artworks, community & corporate art. Residencies. Exhibitions, Murals. Workshops including photography and digital media.
