Marke Meyer is essentially a poet at heart.
Having abandoned the pen and paper in exchange for space itself, Marke now uses sculpture to create his own
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, either in
frenetic movement or caught at rest, remains my only playground."
Marke has pioneered the use of suspension to best display his works and to create the feeling of lightness,
whimsy and freedom.
Marke constantly re-invents himself as an artist but always remains true to his narrative. He is an innovator who
constantly experiments with new concepts: these include the use of other metals (e.g. stainless steel); new
technology (lazer cutting, scanning and enlargement); and new finishes (textures and chroming).
