About Marko Humphrey-Lahti

Marko originally studied Business Law and pursued a successful career in Marketing with some of Europe`s leading businesses. Whilst Head of PR and Marketing Communications at Orange plc, he personally developed many artistic initiatives including the Orange Prize for Fiction. Predominantly self-taught, Marko learnt his traditional stone carving techniques on the Mediterranean island of Gozo. Captivated by the islands` rich Neolithic history he was spurred on to study sculpting techniques at the University of Hertfordshire. Working in a broad range of natural stones, Marko uses the solidity of his materials to map out and explore the realm of emotional experiences and responses. The result is sculpture which moves comfortably between figurative and abstract, bridging the gap between the physical and emotional, in an aesthetically enticing style. He also produces limited edition sculptures from the originals in Foundry Bronze, Aluminium, and composite metal and stone resins. He is a member of the Herts Visual Arts and Cambridge Drawing Society. He works from his studio in North Hertfordshire.

"The problem of contemporary sculpture and the garden is one which has rankled in my mind for years. It is usually resolved through a process of inversion-that is turning it into sculpture in the garden as against garden sculpture. By that I mean the sculptor takes over the garden as an open exhibition gallery, of which the focus is their creation, to which the world of nature merely provides the frame.The Idea that sculpture is a contributory element to an overall'mise en scene',in which, sometimes its role may be incedental rather than central, has been lost.In this we have seen the betrayall of the great tradition of garden sculpture, one which was unashamed at being decorative or delightful."

Customer comment on 'Forest Fairy 2 (bronze Dancer Contemporary statue)' by Plamen Dimitrov
Dear Peter (ArtParkS), Plamen (artist) Just today the package with the sculpture ”Forest Fairy” has arrived. Safe, perfectly packed. I must say “Forest Fairy” is really beautiful, great! I like her very much, her hands, her emotional dance, feelings hidden in her body. Thank you for filling my home with beauty. I wish you both a lot of enthusiasm for marvellous work you do.
