Calling Out (CB)
29 x 15 x 15cm
Born in a small town in South Africa, Mark Chapman initially worked in the mining industry with almost no artistic background.
It was later in life, with the supporting of a loving partner that he felt like he was allowed to follow his dreams and passions.
Using intuition to create and blindly lead by his heart, Chapman starts simply to create sculptural figures that speak deeply from within him. Working in clay with almost no care given to meaning as well as proportions, his works are quirky and playful with gas-masks, goggles or boots recalling elements of his industrial past.
