Geoff Rushton About

I like to experiment with new techniques and materials to create sculptures unlike anything anyone's ever seen before. I'm constantly bothered by how so much art copies other art, so I try to create entities as opposed to sculptures, plants and creatures, not images in 3D, I strive to create something that breathes! I work mostly in wood, but also with wrought iron, copper, stone, glass and paint to name but a few and am constantly looking for new methods and materials to explore. The vast majority of my resources come from re cycled and found objects, I like to start with something that already has interesting qualities, a story of it's own, before I spill my thoughts upon it to create a mixture of both me and medium.

Born in 1986, I grew up on a family farm in North Yorkshire, England.

After school I went on to study 3D design blacksmithing. Shortly after finishing, however, I injured my back quite badly meaning I was unable to smith.

After a long period of despair, I turned to stone carving, which requires much less back movement. Techniques which I learnt with stone translated to wood and I soon found myself exploring and experimenting with a myriad of techniques and materials, the exploration and synergy is now the main focus of my work.

After my first exhibition in august 2010, I was absolutely blown away by the attention my work received, in the aftermath I quit my job and am currently setting out on my journey as a professional artist.

Art is my life, my body and mind are simply tools, created to create.

My life will now follow my art, wherever it takes me.
