Marc’s work is an investigation into natural cycles, and his own personal connection to nature, existence and identity.

Taking materials which contain elements of decay and abandonment, his sculptures articulate the inherent sense of growth that nature emits, while acknowledging the destructive cycle of nature and its ability engulf everything that is manmade.

He aims to confine the temporal nature of existence at a point where the stillness and intimate spaces and forms of his work can be translated through human experience.

Marc Messenger is an artist based in Cornwall, England. He is the recipient of the 2013 Midas Award and was recently selected to work as a graduate assistant to Mark Dion, helping to assemble Dion’s permanent installation The Maritime Artist at the Porthmeor Studios in St Ives.
