Mark Scott-Wood is fascinated by material and process. He works mostly with found objects. He uses these objects by applying texture and concept in a way evocative of childhood and early teenage resourcefulness. This can range from sculpture and painting through to performance and events. The processes he employs are eclectic including pulping paper, firing ceramics or appliquéing fabrics. Although he has a love of craft, the work is intended to challenge and address many aspects of current contemporary art practice through the use of more traditional techniques. The majority of the work has an element of trompe l'oeil about it; in so much as it often appears deceptively obvious but demands further attention. It is this playful nature of the work that he takes pleasure in developing. Recent sculptures have begun to re-examine toys from his childhood and this sits perfectly alongside the style of making. These works are often made to come apart so require an element of assemblage but frustratingly this is not an invitation for play.
