Sculpture at Hampstead School of Art

Sculpture at Hampstead School of Art

This exhibition brings together processes of alchemy - firing, patination, construction, carving, found object, all of which in various ways transform material.

The sculptures - often playful juxtapositions of a personal nature, display the curious encounters experienced in our studios which brings about the alchemy in our artists practice.

The study of Sculpture in today's art schools is ever-expanding and HSoA sculpture tutors encourage students to explore their contemporary and historic experiences outwards from themselves and exercise their intuition, to explore their own sensibilities as well as the materiality inherent in their chosen materials.

A focus on nature alongside an observational emphasis on the life model and experimentation are special flavours of the diversity and invention demonstrated by our artists, the individual creativity is breath-taking.
