This piece has never been exhibited in public anywhere. It was inspired by a vacation to Madrid, Spain. I was taken by the quality of light and the buildings but most especially by the numerous churches.

Mark Burrell’s work has for many years, been particularly drawn to the random possibilities of using found objects in his work. He loves the unexpected and often randomness of where the materials might direct him and the joy of never really knowing where that journey will end up.
He also has a great love of haiku poetry, which has inspired him to strive for an economy of means in his work - in the attempt to do the most with the least. His aim is to take often the poorest and simplest of materials and do something spectacular with them. Creating arenas of activity - Places where the mundane and the ordinary can take on the power to transform.
Mark Burrell has works in numerous private collections both in the UK and the Americas, most notably The Tim Sayer Collection, London.
