Mark Richard Hall was born in 1970 and lives in Dorset with his wife Amanda and his teenage son Luke. A dedicated professional Artist and Sculptor for the last 18 years he works out of his own studio and gallery on the Hampshire/Dorset border.
His fascination with sculpture began early when taken to the bright lights of London as a small child and exposed to the work of ...‘Rodin’.
“That really was a seminal moment for me, I was completely hooked by the powerful physical presence of sculpture and the fact you could touch something so tangible”
Interested in all aspects of the creative process along with a flair for design, Mark initially began along the path to become an architect. The call to sculpture however became too strong and in 1992 he embarked on a career as a freelance sculptor and designer.
Mark Hall creates work for both interior and exterior spaces, private and corporate collections, however all his creations are tactile and humorous.
Mark's love of sculpture comes from how people can actually have a physical relationship with it, take pleasure in its tactility and share the process of the sculptor. Sculpture is a form that can be engaged with on many levels, and through ways that are difficult to explain.
His work is now collected worldwide and dedicated clients that have been acquiring his work for 20 years. His work is renowned for it's wit and skilful execution. His installation work is referred to on university lecture circuits as seamless cutting edge contemporary design.
