Mark Firth Gallery Art

CASS Sculpture Foundation, West Sussex, UK

Fascination with engineering, the sciences, physics and the history of scientific phenomena remain concerns in Mark Firth's work. His earlier pieces carried images, painted or drawn by hand in a resist medium directly on to the aluminium or steel sculpture before being etched—images derived from cuneiform texts, and writings linked to the history of science. He experimented with lasers and with holograms, working towards combining purer forms, which are scientific both in nature and content. Gradually he has simplified his forms, milling and turning basic cuboids into all manner of shapes, assembled in many different combinations.


Mark Firth has exhibited his work regularly in Britain and Europe, with occasional shows in Canada and the United States. His sculpture is in numerous public and private collections internationally.
