Mark Stonestreet Stone Sculptor
Mark Stonestreet’s sculptures are a playful investigation into line, definition and geometry. Working with negative space, light and shadow, Mark gives each of his sculptures direction and flow. Lines direct the form, textures are contrasted and complemented, and shapes are contorted into new, enticing arrangements. Yet each design maintains a sense of Mark’s own, free hand carving, allowing his works to develop in an open and instinctive manner.
Mark lived and worked with the temple carvers of South India for 4 years, learning traditional techniques that have been used for centuries to create Hindu temples around the world. He has setup studio in the town, and spends a good part of the year, sourcing stones and creating the rough forms that become the sculptures you can see here today.
Today he is based near Brighton, UK, and has a studio in the South Downs National Park. Studio visits are welcome by appointment. Mark undertakes commissions both public and private.
His works can be found in collections around the world, including the USA, India and Europe
