Richard Mackness lives and works in York, UK. I believe the imprint of touch and the human actions recorded in an object are important. Objects we encounter in the world are experienced through our physical being – we estimate, measure and reveal the world to ourself as a reflection of the body we possess. And for me, sculpture is a particular discipline; it is a story told in form, mass and surface. It exists in space, sharing the world with every other thing, like a human being.
Gareth Griffiths lives and works in Leeds, UK. Gareth’s work and practice are influenced by West coast American architecture called “Googie” The origin of Googie derives from a John Lautner designed coffee shop built in West Hollywood. This style of architecture was born after the Second World War and became more notable during the 50s and 60s. Most recently Gareth was elected as a member of the Royal Society of British Sculptors.
