Mark Wilsher

Mark Wilsher is an artist living in Norwich. November Pyramid depicts a sculpture located in Toronto, Canada by Bernard Schottlander (1924-1999), who created several public artworks permanently sited in Milton Keynes. November Pyramid originated from Wilsher’s interest in the photographic representation of three dimensional works, and its failure to recreate the real experience of encountering a sculpture. Such ‘distancing’ is further emphasised online – where we can easily see, or think we have seen, images of sculptures from all over the world. By collecting and organising as many images of Schottlander’s sculpture as he could find online, Wilsher attempted to recreate a sense of the work’s three dimensions.
