After the summer season it’s nice to have a meaty project to complete and get everybody back into the swing of things.
These fantastic Carrara heads are no exception. They are a commission for a large project in Lagos, Nigeria that has been in the pipeline for some time. They are in the final stages of polishing now, and if we can just get the paperwork side complete (much harder than the making it currently feels like) then they will be on their way in the next few weeks!
on form in Oxfordshire is a biennual sculpture exhibition that Paul has taken part in since 2002. Growing steadily in size and calibre the show has nurtured many artists through their careers.
It is with great pleasure that Paul installed his work there last week, setting up seven new sculptures, some made specifically for the site. This winged piece is one of a pair, made from Italian Carrara marble they sit on 18th Century Cornish granite pillars.
The show opens on 12th June and is highly recommended.
Paul’s Crystal Head was recently bought and has been positioned in the reception area of a Media Company in St James. The combination of Turkish Onyx, Moroccan Black Marble and Carrara Marble base works well in the space. Paul was so taken with the work place that he had his first experience of considering a desk job…. momentarily of course. Phew!
We couldn’t resist sharing this shot from Paul’s recent trip to Italy. He’s been out scouting for blocks to work on for all the upcoming shows such as on form and obviously soaking up a bit of atmosphere at the same time!
For those avid followers out there, you may remember in September Paul was in Peille setting up works in a James Basson designed garden. This weekend Paul returned and spent time in Biot at a beautiful residence installing a piece for its new owner. Previously shown at Chelsea, ‘Standing Orator’ now sits in the grounds of this traditional home.
After a short transitory stint in the Terminal 5 Gallery of Heathrow, one of Paul’s sculptures has been purchased and is now residing in a hospital in Sanya, in the south of China.
We don’t have any more exciting pictures but it’s always great to know where the pieces end up and it’s often somewhere new and interesting.
