Sculpture creates places.
Public art is increasingly important for defining the individuality of an area and promoting local pride
Public and Private Art should never be considered an after thought, or part of a planning requirement. Instead there needs to be a realization of what the addition of a well planned and appropriate installation can bring to a development, public realm or your own home. Beauty comes in all forms and the most loved pieces of art are those which have been created individually. Art that is personal and which locals and tourists take to their hearts and come back to visit time and time again.
NEW FOR 2019
Colin Spofforth installed his latest work in the centre of Aylesbury at the beginning of March to much fanfare. “i am” is a large and exciting new artwork featuring three elements. Cast in bronze and brightly painted, the work represents personal expression and empowerment.
For the second year running, we are privileged to have been invited to exhibit work at the Henley Festival. To take part in this historic and extraordinary Festival that brings together artists of the highest calibre from all over the world, is something we are looking forward to. A Festival which draws an audience in excess of 30,000 to the most quintessentially British setting they will ever experience.
