Small Red Neon Orb - Mark Beattie
Artist: Mark Beattie
Title: Small Red Neon Orb
Medium: Red neon, powder coated copper and mirror polished stainless steel plinth for table top
Size: 45 × 40 × 35 cm
Small Red Neon Orb was first shown at London Art Fair 2018. The sculpture is mounted onto a mirror polished stainless steel plinth, which is perfect for displaying the piece on a table. Small Red Neon Orb also has a floor standing metal plinth available for an additional £750; the plinth is 120cm in height, painted matt black and raises the sculpture to eye level.
Working with various metals in all their contrasting properties of texture and finish, Mark can make industrial metal appear fluid, malleable and delicate. He continues to study different metals, looking at ways to manipulate and add movement to the material, and over the past 2 years has been developing ways in which neon or LEDs can complement his sculptures, adding movement to a piece and catching the viewer’s eye.
