David Sprakes’s sculptures are based on the natural world, the landscapes of the Peak District and the North East coast.
Inspired by weathered, eroded objects observed and collected in the landscape, the artist translates these into abstract sculptures where textured and patinated surfaces are balanced against polished areas.
Drawing, clay modelling, mould-making, casting, construction and carving illustrates the breadth of techniques in David’s work.
The exhibition introduces various materials, each suited to demonstrate the artist’s sensitivity to form and texture and their change with the passing of time.
