MARKE MEYER – Sculptor

Marke is essentially a poet. Having abandoned the pen and paper in exchange for space itself, he now uses sculpture to create his how unique, quirky concoction of ‘visual poetry’.

According to Marke: “Figures fascinate me…especially the female figure. I prefer the nude figure as it is free of context allowing for an open-ended expression of abstract concepts and emotions. The figure, metaphoric in every sense, describes a state of mind, or more often the projection of ‘mind’ into a space removed…a mind-space perhaps. This is a comfortable, magical space without restraint or restriction. The human body, ether in frenetic movement or caught at rest, remains my only playground.”

Marke Meyer is a sculptor, photographer and a multi-media artist. He was born in Kokstad, spent his childhood in the mountains of Lesotho and matriculated from Westville Boy’s High School in 1981.

He studied for a BSc Agric. (Hort) and graduated in 1987.He then opened his own wholesale nursery business which he ran successfully for eighteen years.

During all these years he studied art privately with his passion being in all things figurative. Sculpture and photography became his tools to explore the human figure. Years ago, with his growing success as an artist, he was finally able to sell the horticultural business and set out on a career as a full time artist.

Marke Meyer’s work is available for sale in many South African galleries. His pieces have traveled abroad to North America, Central America, South America, United Kingdom, Europe, Israel, Poland, New Zealand and Australia.
