Mark Surtees’ “Cut Here”
Blue Mountains-based artist Mark Surtees has been busy creating his installation “Cut Here” for Sculpture at Scenic World 2017.
Constructed with steel and flexible neon, Cut Here explores the environment and our relationship with it, both positive and negative. Mark believes that “Humans consume the world around us in many different ways and what and how we take from the environment affects us greatly.”
This work challenges the viewer to think about their impact on the environment, what and how they consume it and encourages them to have a deeper, more harmonious understanding of it.
