Yes, The Sculpture Garden will be filled with fun, colour and form, be a feast for your eyes and a lift for your spirit. The Sculpture Garden 2019 also brings a vision which observes, digests and rises up against the fast pace and disregard in our present society. How do our observations on our current social evolution impact our choices and ways of consuming?
The Sculpture Garden is:
Friendly and appreciative of our friends and loyalty - we welcome back some favourites.
Open and inviting - we introduce many new artists.
Supporting of the new brave - there is a new section entitled “Young Blood” showcasing those with enough folly and pluck to embark on a career in the arts.
In these uncertain times we focus on presenting work which is sustainable and has longevity. Many of our artists this year work with stone, a solid material which will remain for many, many generations to come. This work takes skill, patience and time. The stone sculpture of Nicolas Moreton has captured the imagination and acclaim of many an art critic: Tim Marlow, Brain Sewell and George Melly, to name a few. Stone has been utilised in sculptures in Cathedrals and Temples for good reason. The energy that the maker places into the work over the time and contemplation required resonate with the viewer from these sculptures.
We envisage our clients responding well to the art form of stone sculpture in the current transitional society in which we find ourselves. Stone, wood, metal, glass and ceramic echo the stability of the earth and ground us, so, connect with this work this year, fall in love with it and if the purse allows, purchase it. We welcome one and all to enjoy these fabulous sculptures and support these committed talented artists.
