Kings, Saints and Sinners Exhibition

I have an exhibition starting this Saturday at the Discovery Centre in Winchester. It is in the City Space Gallery and features my figurative work, this time focusing on characters from local history. I've tried to imagine how the people such as King Alfred or Jane Austen would have stood and what kind of scene might be typical of their lives. I wanted to create self contained scenes that tell a story about the person, and illustrate a snapshot of their life. My figurines show characters of whom we have no exact visual record, and are therefore open to a certain amount of interpretation. My task was to make them into believable three dimensional people, albeit very small clay ones. The show opens Santurday the 11th Jan, until Sunday 9th Feb.
