MARK DAVIS 

“The materials for my mobiles are simple. I use sheet metals of different weight and material, steel being the heaviest, then brass, and aluminum being the lightest. Flat sheet metal is formed by the traditional methods of silversmithing, using hammers and forming tools. The balancing is done by intuition at first, and then as the piece progresses, I am able to fine-tune the balance so that the end result comes as close as possible to my original vision. Initially, my vision is to see the various elements floating in space, relating to -- but not anchored to the earth. By completion, each piece becomes its own very personal universe.

 

Through abstract shapes I play with the concepts of space and relationship. My ideas come from organic life, the human form, and the external landscape, while deeply reflecting my internal landscape and dialogue. The work is playful, joyful, and always changing, and that is the way I see and experience life.”
