William Lasdun

Concepts My work is currently engaged in exploring how certain forms and structures begin, develop and return to their starting point. In particular I am concerned with the form and structure of ocean waves, stratas of rock and structures which straddle the disciplines of engineering and architecture. One can walk through these pieces and in some sense they can be seen as gateways and arches, a kind of contemporary form of the traditional folly in the landscape. They are concerned with movement and travel, with leading the viewer around them and, most importantly, being visually and therefore structurally resolved from every angle.Career path Foundation Course, City & Guilds Art School History of Art Degree (BA Hons) Trained as technical draughtsman and model-maker Set design assistant, English National Opera Freelance designer in architectural firms Full-time sculptor and designer Media Coverage: Sleaford Target, October 2003 Sleaford Standard, October 2003 'Thinking Big' concepts for 21st century British Sculpture, Sculpture at Goodwood, 2003 Art Review, February 2001 Artists Newsletter, November 2000 Sussex Argus, July 2000 Blueprint, January 1999 Sunday Telegraph, August 1998 West Sussex Gazette, August 1998 Woodcarving Magazine, Nov/Dec 1997 Western Morning News, December 1996 Evening Argus, August 1996 read full statement
