Andrew Burton

Artist

Andrew Burton's most recent work explores bricks. Working in Britain, India and the Netherlands, he formed thousands of tiny bricks from clay and constructed these into various sculptures. Each sculpture would be painted or glazed, but then broken up and its constituent parts used to form the next. In this way the sculptures are continually recycled. Burton works with a variety of media, including clay, bronze and stone as well as more ephemeral materials such as bamboo or chili peppers. He has exhibited internationally, in Europe, India and Korea and his work and has undertaken major public commissions in Britain and Asia In 1990 he was First Prizewinner in the MacGrigor Donald Sculpture Prize read full statement
