FUN NEW SCULPTURES!

We’ve just put the first of two John Clark sculptures on display! John likes to “paint and build people” creating eloquent figures which symbolises his creative imagination and as John says  “Heads float in space, arms lie on planes, figures drift." They're fun and vibrant bringing a dash of colour to the gallery, the first titled “Darling” (below) is a pastel green couple embrassing upon a rustic pink plinth. The second called, “Caught Sleeping" is vibrant red couple one of which is being lifted by the other.

“ The technique used to build them is my own confection, combining pattern making, plotting and injection moulding. Each sculpture in an edition is finished with a variety of paints, pigments and waxes that are applied as if to a canvas. "

We love the humour in John’s work and his cunning observance of the human behaviour and form.   Check out some more of his quirky sculptures:

Sculpture Garden

If you have a spare moment while the sun is out, do pop by the sculpture garden in Bradford-on-Avon (Woolley St).   Sculpture is a lovely addition to a beautiful garden and how nice on a summer’s day to be able to wander through the flowers exploring the one-off sculptures.  On display are wood, bronze, wire, stone, ceramics and all manner of different mediums. Exhibitors include Derek Nice, Cathy Wood, Andrea Cryer, Willa Ashworth and Karen Edwards.  Here are some samples
