Mark Anstee makes drawings. From singular observational silverpoint studies to large-scale durational performance drawings, he has made work for museums, galleries and created drawing interventions in the landscape.
His installations collectively known as Drawing Monuments have manifested themselves as witnessed feats of physical endurance; 3D drawn sculptures; faux Neolithic pictographs, and as retina burning neon icons.
Mark uses a wide variety of methods, techniques, and materials, incorporating processes used in printmaking, sculpture, painting, theatre and filmmaking.
He has been commissioned to make projects at Imperial War Museum North Manchester; Stonehenge Wiltshire; Bluecoat Liverpool; De La Warr Pavilion Bexhill; Fabrica Gallery Brighton; Irish Museum of Modern Art Dublin, John Hansard Gallery Southampton, RAMM Exeter, and In Flanders Fields Museum Belgium.
He has works in a number of public and private collections including the David Roberts Foundation.
