Sculpture

Abby Martin

Inspired by the natural environment, described as manmade nature or fake nature. The sculptures are intentionally non-confrontational, blending in with their organic environment, enhancing and transforming a space creating a unobtrusive natural scene. Larger installations leave the audience at leisure to pass through at will, providing a source of escapism. Resin and fibre-glass and a variety of metal finishes are used to create the majority of my work, this makes them suitab…

Alison McGechie

Alison works from her studio in Brighton Open Market creating sculpture and ceramic vessels and teaching adults and children handbuilding skills in clay. A teacher turned artist, Alison takes her inspiration from the human form and the human condition. Life drawing is at the root of her artistic practice and her 3D work stems from it. She works in a variety of media; ceramics, wood, metal and stone, as well as continuing to experiment in 2D, developing techniques and the rang…

Abode; fired clay, coiled, wax finish

The source and inspiration for my sculptures is the natural world.  Sometimes I begin by sketching  in the landscape, or I may bring objects back home to work with.  My intuition and imagination play a large part in the development of each piece.  More recently I have been using metal such as copper, recycling it from the scrap yard.  Each piece comes with its own history and patina;  the material and surface then become an integral part of the sculpture. I use different mate…

My work explores the simplicity of Geometry in its broader sense, examining how to stretch its boundaries and break its rules to create sculptural structures and paintings based on this conflict between order and chaos whilst retaining a sense of harmony.

I make sculptural glass landscapes and beach scenes using a collage of found items from the local beaches and semi-precious stones. I aim to make my glass work and my images as textural as possible, combining the physical world with the imagined. Since the subjects of my work tend to live outside, I have been making some larger scale pieces for the garden. I create my illustrations on found papers, like old books and train tickets. I like to work on weathered surfaces, like w…

My passion for creating figurative sculpture started in my teens, I found the concentration, the quiet environment totally absorbing. This passion remained with me and I returned, whenever possible, to the one area that gave me total peace of mind. Sculpture became an integral part of my life, a second self although my choice of materials has continuously changed and developed. Currently based in Sussex, I have exhibited with the Brighton Sculptors in The Brighton Arts Festiv…

Big red pepper

After leaving school i went to Worthing Art College from there i went to Newport Art College in South Wales where i studied Graphics/Illustration which i really loved. Our teaching was based on really looking and seeing in order to be able to draw really well.   I loved the process of Litho while i was there and although this was difficult to pursue when not at college i have done a course of this taught by a friend at North Star Studios in Brighton. At that time i was doing…

I enjoy the challenge of making new solid forms from various powdered and liquid substances, both natural and man made. This is achieved by my adaptation of the casting process. The materials have a fresh existence and a new structure. There is a strong sense of game playing in this process. I set certain rules but much is left to chance and rapid decisions are needed to guide the emergence of the eventual piece. Its working with and against Nature. The rhythmic manipulation…

I retired from primary teaching in 2002, having always been in charge of Art and Design in the various schools in which I taught. I had great opportunities to learn skills across the wide range of arty crafty subjects (everything from pottery to lino cuts from woodwork to embroidery!) On retirement I finally had the energy to explore and develop my own interests. Initially I went to life drawing and sculpture classes, loving creating the human form in clay and stone and this…
