Description

Mark Connelley is a sculptor and landscape artist with a contemporary take on ancient themes. He works primarily in bronze, steel, and natural materials to create large-scale sculpture and engaging environments.

Artist Philosophy / Bio

The process begins long before the metal is cut. Influenced by ancient art and themes, artist Mark Connelley relies heavily on research as inspiration, sketches to begin exploring ideas, and computer-generated models to plan the size and shape of the materials to be used.

Working primarily in bronze, steel, and natural materials such as stone and concrete, Mark prefers to create large scale pieces that are designed for their specific environment. Things like trees, shrubs, walkways, and views are given as much consideration as the patinas and finishes that complete the exterior of each piece.

For this artist, quality workmanship and hands-on attention are just as important as the design itself. Every piece is an original and every effort is made to ensure that no detail has been overlooked.
