176 Sculpture by the Lakes
Five artists exhibit at the lakes
DAW 2018, Sculpture by the Lakes will be hosting four Dorset based artists alongside creator of the sculpture park, Simon Gudgeon, who will also be exhibiting his work during the two week county-wide arts festival. Stonemason Kieran Bigg, oil painter Stephen Bithell, fibre artist Carla Taylor and ceramicist Suzette Knight, will be talking about and demonstrating their work at various locations around this unique arts venue.
Simon Gudgeon is one of Britain’s leading contemporary sculptors and is known for his often very large-scale, semi-abstract forms, created in his signature smooth style. Using a stripped-back aesthetic, Simon takes nature as a major influence, working directly from his encounters with, and observations of, live subjects and the natural world.
Kieran Bigg works as a stonemason for a number of restoration and new build projects.
Stephen Bithell paints landscapes in oil on canvas, working mainly Plein Air, capturing the Dorset countryside in all its moods.
Carla Taylor creates contemporary sustainable wool sculptures inspired by the British countryside and coastline using the technique of needle felting.
Suzette Knight makes unconventionally beautiful handmade ceramics. She is inspired by the effects of weathered surfaces and textures and uses many different techniques to make her unique pots.
