MARK YALE HARRIS (b. 1937, American)

Mark Harris is a stone sculptor, whose works are in the line of the early Modernism of Brancusi and Arp. While his figures depict natural subjects, mainly wildlife and figuration, his style abstracts to a geometric formalism. Being of stone or bronze and based in nature, Harris’ sculptures resonate with romance and naturalistic themes – conveying a love of family, nature, and the great outdoors.

Harris first realized his true passion in the Southwest. Stone carving became his life’s work, as Santa Fe became his home in the late 1990s. With much to learn, Harris chose a mentor whom he had long admired to assist him with honing his burgeoning artistic skills – sculptor Bill Prokopiof (Aleut, 1944-1999). In the spirit of the nation’s most recognized Native American artist, Allan Houser (Chiricahua Apache, 1915-1994), Prokopiof and sculptor Doug Hyde (Nez Perce) took Harris under their wings and generously shared their immense knowledge, talent, and vision. It should be remembered here that the multi-million dollar sculptures of Brancusi and Arp were, themselves, highly influenced by native arts from around the world.

Prior to developing as an artist, Harris had spent many years in the area of sustainable urban development (specifically real estate and hotels), a conventional career in which he was quite successful, but not fully satisfied. The transition into a wholly fulfilling trade was both challenging and exciting. The artistic passion that had existed just beneath the surface of Harris’s long-established business persona was finally emerging. He accessed the invaluable experience of his mentors, along with his own vision, to create an evolving body of work in alabaster, marble, limestone, and bronze, often combining different elements to bring forth contrasts of composition. Over the past fifteen years, Harris has continued to challenge himself as a sculptor, finding it important to continue learning through master workshops and teaching.
