Exhibitions: Past

Knott from this World: 15 November to 15 December 2008

The fluid and sinuous lines that characterise the large scale sculptures of Mark Swart create an instantly striking and bold effect that has a definite presence in the space in which they stand. His works have an organic familiarity which combines both the raw edges of lines and asymmetric shapes with the precise and lissom flow of bold, curving formations.

My work is a process of form reaching towards beauty. Whether it is design, sculptural, architectural or functional, the design philosophy is simple; form follows function. Using only the essential lines to define the object, it’s about how form presents itself, the message it conveys and the feelings that it calls forth.” Mark Swart
