Tom Waugh

Tom Waugh MRSS is a British sculptor based in Somerset. He has been an associate member of the Royal Society of Sculptors since 2018. In 2005 he gained a First in Architectural Stone Carving at the City and Guilds of London Art School and has spent time in India studying traditional carving techniques with the temple carver Raja Saceran.

‘I find it fascinating that sculpture has the ability to cause a shift in people’s perception. In my work I hope to challenge ideas of material value and make people look again at the things we take for granted.’

Tom Waugh carves stone and marble in minute detail to mirror the discarded waste of human consumption. These objects document the tiny imprints of human use. Plastic bags, cardboard boxes and tin cans are squashed, crushed and wrinkled whilst still displaying the traces of mass production.

His carving can be seen on St Pancras Station, St Martin in the fields and St Georges Chapel, Windsor. His Sculptures are exhibited widely and can be seen in the collections of Warwick University and Gladstone’s Library.

Colin Rose

Colin Rose has worked as a sculptor for over thirty years. He has exhibited throughout the UK and Europe and has undertaken many public sculpture commissions.

He has undertaken public sculpture commissions for a very wide range of clients in various mediums. Colin usually works by taking a brief from the client and allowing the brief and the site to lead the design. Over the years he has worked in a variety of mediums from mirror polished stainless steel to stone. More unusually he has worked with Rope, Brick and even Coal Dust depending on the requirement of the brief.

While developing his practice Colin taught fine art and was head of Sculpture at Sunderland University from 2000 till 2006.

In addition to making sculpture, Colin Rose has a strong passion for drawing and the immediacy the process offers. The understanding gained through drawing is an important tool in the development of his designs and his working practice.

Lizzie Farey

Lizzie Farey’s intricate structures capture a still moment, a distillation and order. Calm after a storm.

Intimate forms provide a hint of the process of creation. We can see and even feel points of tension in the work. Our eye can follow the artist’s hand, the choices made in twisting and turning this flexible medium.

Born in Singapore, for the last 30 years Farey has been based in rural Galloway, in Scotland’s South West. The rural setting of home and studio are her guiding inspiration, her sensitivity with wood revealing an interaction with nature that is deeply personal.

Lizzie Farey grows much of her own pallet of artist’s materials. Planting, tending and harvesting a range of willow which is grown for both texture and colour.

Willow, it’s flow of flex and tension is often manipulated into rhythmic patterns, Artist, willow, form, each unique, reach a perfection as the work comes together, inner creative process and final form working as one.

‘My work engages with nature. I focus on recreating the essence of natural form through the medium of willow, larch, ash, hazel and other locally grown woods. Influences from Japan continue to inspire my attempts to capture the simplicity, practicality and beauty of the materials.’

Pierre Diamantopoulo

Pierre Diamantopoulo has two distinct strands to his figurative style. They seem to be intellectually and emotionally worlds apart, but they share the same impetus.

One is a cool and measured response to a profound sense of unrest. In this work, figures fly in defiance or are challenged by their environments. They ‘trippingly’ negotiate upheaval or uncertainties — each work is a balancing act, a metaphor for a precarious state of living or existence. Androgynous and anonymous human figures tilt and fall away – on and off objects that also teeter on a chaotic or shifting stage. Figures may be set free against strongly convergent lines, shapes and forms.

The other strand of Pierre Diamantopoulo’s practice is ambiguous, allegorical and atavistic, but still concerned with mercurial forces. Here, he works on impulse— mixing dark foolery, the poetic and the literary with theatre and folklore— blended with a sort of logical nonsense. This may be a voyage into the past, personal or absurd, diverted by the raw and primitive, with the wit, the mimic and maverick on board. These works are often executed with an immediate, freer hand, exploiting the texture of the raw material.

Dorothy Brook

Dorothy Brook became a sculptor in a roundabout way. She had studied Graphic Design at St Martins School of Art and worked as a freelance designer for about 10 years. When circumstances changed, a friend suggested she join a sculpture class. She loved it having no idea that she would be able to work in three dimensions having been used to seeing everything from a graphic and linear perspective.

To her surprise her graphic background gave her work a very different look. The lines and curves have to flow when viewed from every angle. The form is pared down until all that is left is its essence. Ultimately the aesthetic of the piece is the most important element.

Although Dorothy may start a sculpture with an armature and an idea of what she is going to make, it very often changes during the process. It is the sculpture that dictates where it is going and she follows, refining the lines as it progresses. Usually working in plaster as she finds it is easier to achieve the sharp edges and smooth surfaces that define her style. ‘I love to capture the split second that epitomizes the dynamic of a movement, just as a photograph would – the frozen moment.’

Dorothy Brook still loves the process as much as she did in that first sculpture class. The realisation that her drawings can and have come to life is very satisfying, not bad for a Graphic Designer!

Philip Melling

Philip Melling works predominantly in metals creating an eclectic range of sculpture for exhibition, private clients and public installation.

He draws inspiration mostly from the materials he uses. Through concepts of movement and through experimentation he develops the shape of his sculptures.

His collection ‘Elements’ focuses on Earth, Air, Water and Fire and describing the reaction when those elements meet.

In developing the collection Philip Melling concentrated on using a repetitive form – curved metal bars, to generate concepts and capture the movement of elemental reactions.

Philip’s sculptures are designed to work as sculptures for the home, office and garden, as well as larger scale installations for private or public spaces.

Ian Turnock

Ian Turnock produces sculpture inspired by patterns and symmetry in nature. One of his main sources of inspiration are the silhouettes formed against the sky by tree foliage at different times of the year.

The spaces between the branches and leaves are just as important. A concept known in Japanese gardens as ‘Ma’, and is akin to the silences between the notes in music. Sometimes it is the gaps I am looking for just as much as the leaves themselves.

Ian Turnock has a background in graphic design which influences his exploration of form and line. Drawings and photographs are the starting point from which he develops organic, abstract and figurative sculpture.

Ian creates intricate and detailed drawings from which the final artwork is digitally cut. The designs can be cut in stainless steel, corten, aluminium, copper, reclaimed steel and plywood. This transforms the drawn line into a tangible object.

Susan Andreae

Susan Andreae is a sculptor and printmaker based in London.

Having grown up in London, she is fascinated by the complexity of living in the city – the crowds, commuters, architecture and energy of urban life.

She also travels frequently to Southern Italy and is inspired by the simplicity of the ancient architecture and colours of the Mediterranean.

Ideas evolve for Susan Andreae from things she sees and experiences and always from drawings made in situ, which start the creative process. She then experiments with techniques of layering using multiple images superimposed to arrive at a final image, eluding to the passing of time and historical change.

Zac Greening

Zac Greening draws his inspiration principally from nature – ‘the ultimate sculptress’. He finds the sculptural forms created by the sun, moon, waves and trees particularly inspiring as symbols of sustainability.

He works in a wide range of media from discarded plastic bottles to organic matter. Often these materials are fused together to reinforce the aesthetic or narrative that he’s looking to express.

A narrative is created that highlights the relationship between man and the natural environment.

Common themes found in his work often abstractly express or make a comment on current issues. Issues such as sustainability, environmental degradation, or consumption. Alternatively they may simply be an expression of the marvel and awe he sees in a sunset or the kinetic and meditative experience found in the rolling of sea waves.

Zac Greening communicates and reminds the viewer of mankind’s inextricable socio-economic and spiritual link with the natural world
