Mark Butler

“Sculpting for me is re-discovering the art of play, but with heavier machinery and a lot of heat! My influences often have a scientific background, in the amazing forms that can be found in the microscopic world and their unseen influence on our world, or the layering of mapping information onto a landscape. I aim to pass on this wonder of the unseen through my work.

Studying with the OCA has been a great experience, introducing me to the world of art and helping me to develop my voice. I have been studying for 6 years now and am only half way through, but my aim is not to rush it but to get the most out of it.”
