Multi-media art for Mark is a balance between creative instinct and technical skill. Mark works with a variety of opposing, yet complimentary mediums providing a balance of harmonious achievement and creative accomplishment.
Where Mark's paintings portray meticulous realism, his sculptures take on a more fluid and contemporary form. Successful execution offers a strong sense of personal fulfilment, creating lifelong pleasure for both himself and the viewer.
Mark is mostly inspired by nature's flora and fauna. He also takes stimulus from a range of artists including his 2nd great-grandfather, Samuel Horatio Moreton (1842-1921). Mark focuses attention on his interpretation of these visual stimuli and works to show an emotional connection within each of his art pieces.
Mark has achieved a number of awards for both his public and private art commissions, as well as within the sign-writing industry. Mark sells his artworks locally, nationally and internationally.
Raymond Herber lives and works at Iron Ridge Quarry Sculpture Park nestled in the hills overlooking North Canterbury's Waipara Valley. He was born in Christchurch in 1971, one of seven children from a European immigrant family of artists.
Steel and stainless are Raymond's medium of choice, and his work encompasses small scale intimate studies of moments suspended in time, whimsical interactive and kinetic pieces as well as large scale private and public sculpture.
