Extracting sensuous curves and classic detail from unforgiving material, Mark suspends art in the discipline that hovers in a veneer of untouchability around these classic vehicle bodies in his workshop. This working space is characterised by the alchemy of Mark's negotiation between his clients desires, the physical limits of tools and materials, and his own very highly tuned sensibilities.
Mark Nugent is an artist, a craftsman and a highly intelligent human being.
Many thanks to Mark for access to his shop and imposition on his time. Big gratitude to Alison Plasto for her professional insight and keeping us on track; to Wez Thompson for sound architecture; Belinda Soole for her eyes and vision capture; Peter Aland for chomping clips under an umbrella of ideas from director Jack Randell.
