Chris DunseathArtist, Lecturer / academic
My sculpture is concerned with a diverse range of concepts and is made out of a variety of materials including wood, stone, bronze and paper. The content has ranged from an interest in transformation and change to its current involvement with aspects of theoretical physics. The scale ranges from smaller pieces to large scale public sculptures. Some of the ideas require a subtractive sculptural process involving direct stone and wood carving while others involve additive constructional processess using laminated ash veneer and paper pulp. The spirit of scientific enquiry in the work resulted in its inclusion in 'Beyond Ourselves' one of the first Arts Council funded contemporary art exhibitions held at the centre of scientific debate, The Royal Society. I agree with the physicist Richard Feynman when he refers to the inadequacy of science to capture the marvel of our universe and for the need for art to help bridge the gap between the tangible and the intangible.
