Recently I went on a short course at West Dean College in West Sussex. It was all about how to make large scale sculpture using polystyrene as a base – perfect for me as I have been working on a number of new works with the aim of going large.
It was a hugely inspirational place and the tutor John Blakeley excellent and well experienced in this area having spent much of his career working in the film industry.
I was able to work up ‘Danseur’ a new sculpture with origins in my ‘Iron Man’ piece but where I have sought to enhance the lines. The photo on the right shows the work before the Crystacal plaster was added.
Anyway – I was incredibly honoured by Dr Sharon-Michi Kusunoki of West Dean who seeing my work wanted to include it in her Show ‘Effervescence’ – on until Jan 2013.
