Collection: Marc Bodie

I endeavour to have emotion at the heart of all my work whether it is suggested in an abstract way ie through posture or gesture or perhaps even the texture of a peice or more traditionally through the expression on a face.

The inspiration that informs my work can come from many sources including novels, poetry or lyrics from songs and the natural world. I hope to imbue my chosen means of expression, the male figure, with intense emotion and the influence of other sculptors who have made a deep impression on me ie Michelangelo, Rodin and Frink to name a few.

Stone carving was my first real step into the world of professional sculpting. I would use myself as a model, surrounding myself with mirrors and this early training has given me a good knowledge of human anatomy. The poses were physically challenging and not something I could expect a model to keep up for a prolonged time but all of this enabled me to find meaning in the musculature of my own body and to embody this in stone.

These days I mostly work in clay in order to facilitate poses which can require a balancing point or are more fluid, slender limbs can reach out beyond the trunk. These pieces are then cast in bronze or bronze resin which are more suited for a more open approach.
