Marcus Richards - SculptorsI studied sculpture at West Surrey College of Art finishing in 1990.
It has been said that my work rests upon the opposition between high-tech equipment and the low-tech ceramic tiles with which it is made.
The observation is indeed true, but the objects also carry a menacing presence suggesting a former existence.
I like to present familiar objects with the authority of iconography.
I am currently working in utilitarian fabrics such as vinyl (see "Fly") to introduce an element of implied practicability.
My work can be viewed at my studio by prior arrangement.
