Mark Humphrey AMNS


Mark originally studied Business Law and pursued a successful career in PR and Marketing with some of Europe’s leading businesses. Whilst at Orange, he personally developed many artistic initiatives including the Orange Prize for Fiction.

Predominantly self-taught, Mark gained his traditional stone carving techniques on the Mediterranean island of Gozo. Captivated by the islands’ rich Neolithic history he was spurred on to study sculpting techniques at the University of Hertfordshire.

Working in a broad range of natural stones, Mark uses the solidity of his materials to map out and explore the realm of emotional experiences and responses. The result is sculpture which moves comfortably between figurative and abstract, bridging the gap between the physical and emotional, in an aesthetically enticing style. He also produces limited edition sculptures from the originals in Foundry Bronze, Aluminium, and composite metal and stone resins.

Mark's inspiration to carve is fuelled by an internal drive to experiment with both shape and form and is enthused by natural forms, landscapes and facets of human emotions.

Mark exhibits widely in galleries and group shows in the UK and Internationally. His sculptures have been exhibited by the Royal Society of British Artists and the National Society on many occasions. He was shortlisted for the Royal Academy’s Summer Exhibition in 2008.

He was elected to the National Society in 2003 joining previous members including LS Lowry, Graham Sutherland and Henry Moore. In 2006, he was elected an honorary member of the Fine Art Association, Gibraltar.

Mark has been a member of the Hertfordshire Visual Arts Forum since 1996.

Working from his studio in North Hertfordshire, Mark’s sculptures can be found in public and private collections and gardens in the UK, Europe, China and the U.S.A.
