Paul travelled to Devon last week to install art work at the beautiful spot on the edge of Dartmoor. Delamore Arts and Sculpture Exhibition will be open every day of May and is a lovely site with mature grounds and a thoughtful selection of artwork.
Paul’s work caught the eye a Guardian reporter last week and a photo of one of his recent pieces was featured in the pages of the national pages of Fridays paper.
The piece was one of the new smaller pieces that was shown at the Affordable Art Fair in London over the weekend.
Please contact us for any further information, but be patient while we work our way through the flood of press interest!
Last week Paul and Vitaly installed (with a few extra hands!) a commission for a desk designed for a Saville Row client.
The desk began as a 16 tonne block of Italian Portoro Marble which was selected from a yard in Carrara by Paul and William from Workingstone last year. This marble comes from the region of La Spezia where it is quarried from under the sea, The distinctive black and bright gold pattern is formed in a marine environment where it is deep, poorly oxygenated and rich in organic matter.
The desk has been a very exciting project and the opportunity to work with the architects at Denton Corker Marshall was a pleasure. The installation was expected to be quite and undertaking but the expertise of the whole team (including Tony from Riverside Haulage) ensured it happened smoothly.
Just goes to show what’s possible! From the depths of the sea to the reception of Saville Row offices.
Last week the Evening Standard featured one of Pauls sculptures in the sumptuous setting of a Regency home in the outer circle of London’s Regents Park.
Belonging to property specialist Naomi Heaton the Onyx sculpture sits in the entrance hall of her home and sits on a block of black marble. It seems to be surrounded by a small fish pond at its base.
We always welcome images of Pauls work in it’s setting. If any one would like to send images of their Paul Vanstone sculpture you can email them direct to us using details on the contact page.
Paul recently exhibited with fellow artist Natasha Kumar. The show at the Royal Geographical Society concentrated on the influence of India in the work of both artists. Guests to the private view were lucky enough to attend talks by both artists where they described how time in India has shaped their work.
Pauls experience there in the 1990’s clearly influenced his technique and continuing fascination with the process of turning raw stone in to light, fluid works of art.
It was a wonderful event and the the piece above, ‘Cararra Profile’ will now make its way to it’s new home in Abu Dhabi.
We received a beautiful card this morning – a stunning print of one of Paul’s sculptures bought this year by a client in Lancashire.
Paul’s piece ‘Ribbon Profile’ has been used as the feature in this lovely festive image cleverly turned into a Christmas card by the client. If only we’d thought of this first!
May we take this opportunity to wish everyone a happy festive season, and an enjoyable New Year!
