Contemporary Art in Churches: who, what, where and why
Mark Cazalet had an eclectic training which has influenced his broad range of media and working processes. After graduating from Falmouth School of Art he held two post graduate scholarships in Paris and Gujarat India. He is particularly interested in colour and markmaking which he has explored in glass, textile, printed books, murals and traditional materials. He is a well-established figure in today’s ecclesiastical art world. He has completed many church commissions. Typical of this London-based artist, born in 1964, are his urban scenes, such as the appropriately busy Carnival Triptych for the Notting Hill church St Clement’s, Notting Dale, or his 2001 reredos for the Fraser Chapel in Manchester Cathedral.
