Opening Reception:

Mark Chatterley is a master sculptor who translates his ideas into a visual feast. A visit to the big stones in Scotland inspired his creations that are bold in appearance, yet mute in tone which makes for a delightful balance that motivates meditative reflection.

 

Artist Statement:

 

Exploring... After the pandemic, I wanted to see if I could come up with something new visually that I found interesting.  The results are meditative pieces to sit and feel quiet around.  Some are like haiku poems, trying to relay memories of feeling in a 3-dimensional way.   A visit to the big stones in Scotland inspired bound monolithic forms.  The figure is always present, sometimes in subtle ways.  The surface textures let me play with color, visually flattening, or accentuating the form.
