Anthony makes artworks which explore movement and “aliveness” through an energetic interaction with a variety of media. Observational studies from nature and images from the imagination, from stories or folklore are the starting point for the development of sculptures and paintings. Always the aim is to go beyond representation/abstraction towards the communication of the direct, living experience coming out of the moment.

 

Working in 3D and 2D allows for a dialogue to take place between tangible, physical forms and the more ephemeral expressions made using liquid media on paper. From this interchange motifs emerge which in turn lead to further explorations.

 

All aspects of the sculptural process and the changes of state often involved in production contribute creatively to what is made.
