Mark Fenwick, a sculptor, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Artists for dedication, achievements, and leadership in the field of fine art.

A lifelong artist at heart, Mr. Fenwick hails from more than 60 years of expertise in crafting wood and large-scale fiberglass sculptures. Specializing in everything from basic wood carvings to more complicated arrangements depicting dramatic scenes and abstract imagery, his work has been featured at numerous exhibits and shows across California, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Vermont for several decades, including at the Hampden Gallery at the University of Massachusetts and on the cover of Artforum magazine. Styling himself as a primitive modernist, Mr. Fenwick grew up in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, where cultivated an early penchant for chopping lumber and fashioning art pieces from the wood. He soon joined a commune near Brattleboro, Vermont, the Monteverdi Artists Collaborative (or the “Total Loss Farm,”) which played host to a number of talented young artists. Providing stage pieces for the commune’s spectacular theater productions, his art began to take on a more surreal flair, depicting mythological figures and woodland creatures for viewers to puzzle over. 

A committed anti-consumerist, Mr. Fenwick’s art has long defied definition or commercialization, and has earned its place in various universities and private collections throughout the years. Among his most cherished accomplishments, he is particularly proud to have brought several of his sculptures to Port Mouton in Nova Scotia, where they can be viewed by using Google Earth. In accounting for his overall success, he largely credits the support and mentorship of his friend, the late Luis Yglesias, a doctor of humanities and professor at Brandeis University. Looking toward the future, Mr. Fenwick hopes to finish redesigning his house and, at some point, publish a memoir on his life.
