NEW STONE SCULPTURE

An exciting new show featuring contemporary stone carvers.

About the artists

Philip Surey
Philip Surey studied Lettering at the City & Guilds of London Art School establishing a London based studio in 1996 where inscriptions and commissions for many varied clients are hand produced in stone, wood and with brush. Alongside commissioned projects, his own work explores the sculptural possibilities of lettering and line, and has exhibited at the RA Summer Show and at Art Antiques London 2010 & 2011 where he was represented by Art Dealers William Agnew & Co.

Jon Whitbread
I work with native limestone, sandstone and slate. As a trained architectural carver and stonemason my pieces are geometrical, tightly controlled, highly finished, heavy and tactile. I am in control of the stone but the material is central to the effect. I am interested in suggesting the movement of unmovable stone in the mind of the viewer and attempting to create landscapes and narratives in a medium not usually associated with these. My influences lay mostly in myth, psychology and literature.

Ben Newman
Ben studied Fine Art at Central St Martins, graduating in 1990. He is currently working as a stonemason and foreman on Heritage buildings. Ben is interested in carving abstract and geometric forms using English “marbles” and Portland stone. ‘The skill of the “process” of carving and the “beauty” of the realised form are the motivating factors in my work’
