The sculptures contain components which are all man made. They come from diverse sources, either found or donated to the artist by very different people from different backgrounds.
These quirky pieces hopefully, carry a positive message, albeit about recycling, one can make something aesthetically pleasing with reused objects out of varied origins.
Neil’s art concentrates on combining different textures and colours that are found naturally in the chosen medium, which he then emphasise with different finishes. The forms are depicted by the medium chosen, often but not exclusively organic in nature, and he works with the material to bring out its natural beauty.
James Tait is primarily a sculptor, but also paints on paper. His works are abstract, but draw inspiration from the shapes and colours of the landscape. He works mainly with painted steel or wood and his aim is ‘to please the eye and feed the soul’.
James exhibits with the Surrey Sculpture Society and annually with AppArt shows. He has exhibited works at the Eton College Gallery, Royal Academy, Globe Gallery, Cranleigh Threes, and various open shows including Light Box open and London Group open. For the month of March 2014 James held a solo show of paintings and sculptures in the Robert Phillips Gallery, Walton on Thames.
He lives in Shepperton and works from his workshop in Hersham, Surrey
After an initial career as a professional sailor Ros went on to take a degree in Fine Art at University for the Creative Arts. Since graduating in 2002, she has been exhibiting in sculpture parks and galleries as well as making site-responsive and site-specific pieces and installations for different locations. She is interested in sustainability particularly of the marine environment and women’s role in society and accordingly she makes pieces that advocate for social change.
Ros make artwork often using found material and found objects, used as a whole or in parts, selected because of their intrinsic qualities and aesthetics. She adapts and takes on new working methods accordingly employing a variety of processes to develop new pieces.
There is a conceptual starting point for much of her work and she works out her ideas in whatever material or form is appropriate, researching the material and objects recycled and looking into to the processes used to make them and why they were used and by whom. This informs and influences the final artworks.
