By artist alumnus Mark Nicholson
We are delighted to present the 3rd annual limited edition series, a sculpture that functions as a wall light as well as an artwork. Painstakingly designed and crafted by Sculpture Space alumnus Mark Louis Francis Nicholson, the edition is a must-have for area collectors. Mr. Nicholson is a 28 year old sculptor and furniture designer born in Syracuse, New York. Mr. Nicholson lives in Somerville, MA, the furthest subway ride he can get from downtown Boston. Mark’s work comes much from his life/education history. He began studies at University of New Hampshire as a mechanical engineer. He’d always loved making things, putting things together, inventing. He transferred to Alfred University and studied sculpture, but with an unusual vantage point of knowing engineering lingo, processes, and efficiencies. In school and after, Mark had trouble with the culture of our current times paying less and less attention to formal Art. He wanted to make things that were approachable, affordable, and understandable as well as meaningful. The urge was not to water down artistic messages, but to draw people in to objects using an understandable visual language. This led him to form the company he now runs, City of Industry Design. In partnership with two other artists, Mark makes functional furniture and sculpture using a philosophical equation of functionality, history, beauty, and sustainability. It is his opinion that the meaning of his work, along with that of all others, is intrinsic in the work, and does not need to be explained beyond the viewing, touching, smelling etc… of the work.
