A Sense of Symmetry

Richard Fox is a sculptor whose work is focused on form, balance, and a place for contemplation


His sculpting is unique

Richard Fox has been working with wood, bronze and stone since 2008. He uses woods that are native to the UK. His particular favourite is Sycamore. It has a grain that is pale in colour, and catches the light in such a way that its appearance changes as the sculpture rotates. His method of sculpting is unique, and has taken some time to develop.

The sculpture is fixed to a spindle and can be turned by hand on the base to give different views. The interaction of the hand with the sculpture works both on a physical and emotional level. The viewer’s response is given life as they themselves move the piece. The rotating pin is fixed on the base of the sculpture at the point of balance. This gives the sculpture a sense of symmetry and resolve.

Richard finds that when he has finished a sculpture there may be a certain compelling curve or view that will inspire the direction of the next series of works.

 


 

Richard’s bronze sculptures are each cast in a series of nine. His focus on the form has also led onto experimenting with his own patination - where time and nature have a say.

Richard’s work is held both privately and corporately within the UK, Europe, America and the Middle East.
