Mark Brown makes fun, one-of-a-kind mixed media sculptures and clocks in his backyard studio in Easthampton, Massachusetts. Trained as a painter, he has worked on canvas for 25 years, and his interest in color, pattern and figurative imagery can be seen in this current body of three-dimensional work. Each of his pieces is a unique, stylized and engaging character.
Most of the components in Mark's artworks have had another life, and indeed much of what he uses is collected at tag sales and flea markets. This ensures that each individual piece has its own identity. He responds to the opportunities presented by the materials at hand, and he believes that each object has it own power. These household items were designed with style and utility in mind. This dash of panache carries over into the new, transformed union of vintage bits and pieces and contemporary sensibilities.
Mark's work is shown throughout the United States. Recently he spent a day with a film crew in his studio, and an edited version of that visit will be broadcasted on HGTV this fall. He was featured in Transformations East, a recycle show originating at the Fuller Museum of Art, and people from all over the world have collected his sculptures.
