‘Painting and sculpture are very archaic forms. It's the only thing left in our industrial society where an individual alone can make something with not just his own hands, but brains, imagination, heart maybe.’ Philip Guston
Sculpture is often seen as the most primitive artistic practise, yet its depiction of the human form in all its subtleties, nuances and fleshy detail, is as true to the subject as any painting. The body is seductively crafted, curvaceous and stylized, frozen in isolated movement for all to observe and we see families holding each other close, seeming to melt into a unity of stone. Objects of nature such as flowers and ripples are sweetly sculpted using the earth’s elements in clay, limestone and polished wood and surreal lipstick filled handbags, florescent guitars and neon orbs are quite the feature; sprinkling the exhibition with a touch of the 21st century and providing a light hearted contrast to the traditional torsos.
