For this exhibition, Mark’s work has taken him to Africa and Siberia where he was able to spend time researching his subjects in their own environment.  The exhibition is made up of his small-scale bronzes such as the Walking Kudu, a One Ton Bull Elephant, a group of Wild Dog on the prowl, a Young Dromedary camel, hornbill, pelicans and Malibu Stork.  His travels to Siberia involved the magic of initially finding tiger pug marks in the snow and then finally tracing the tiger, resulting in two magnificent bronzes.

Hornbill, Zazou Bronze, edition of 9, 20cm h x 15cm wx 33cm.

Mark has had no formal art school training, his ability is based quite simply on dedication and hard work coupled with an acute and perceptive eye, drawing heavily on experiences gained during his early years being brought up in Kenya and regular sculptural safaris around the world with his ‘backpack studio’.  His sculptures reflect his instinctive understanding of the behaviour and physicality of the animals he sculpts.  Working with extraordinary speed, if the original clay model fails to speak to him within a couple of hours, Mark destroys it and starts again.  He captures violence, speed and movement with deceptive ease and he is internationally recognised as the master sculpture of the animal in motion.

Curriculum Vitae:

Mark Coreth, born in 1958, lived on the family farm in Kenya until 1971 when he was sent to the UK to attend Ampleforth College.  From 1979-1993 he served in the Army, however his passion was always for sculpture and, while stationed in Germany, he would turn boot rooms and attics into temporary studios.  Coreth’s first one-man exhibition with the Sladmore Gallery was in 1986 and he has continued to show with them ever since. 2015 saw him complete a life-size bronze of the much-loved race-horse Frankel, commissioned by his owner, Prince Khalid Abdullah which was unveiled by HM The Queen at Royal Ascot.
