We've been charmed silly ever since Steve Lovatt's 'Twisted' collection arrived at our Weybridge gallery. These (life-size!) 'balloon' dogs are irresistibly tactile - their solidarity and satisfying weight endlessly fascinating: we've been conditioned over innumerable childhood birthday parties to perceive balloon animals as lightweight and fragile...
In order to better demonstrate the sculptures' 3D physicality, we decided to give 'Pom Pom' here a video-shoot, in all his glossy, reflective glory!
Lovatt is an artist and sculptor who worked over several years producing pieces in a variety of materials. He has experimented and created work in everything from bronze, wood, glass, fibreglass, steel, ceramic, porcelain and resin, and also combined all these materials into multi-media creations. He feels that this flexibility across varying mediums is crucial to his artistic output, “I am not constrained by any material -I explore the potential of all media to allow my work to evolve.”

A thoughtful and quietly spoken artist, Scott Bauer’s polite manner is the perfect reflection of a series of accomplished original acrylic works with pristine painted stripes as their signature structure. A genre named by the artist as linear formalism, the term conjures thoughts of complex algebraic formulas, a mindset far away from the freedom of creative imagination. Using fragments of memory along with his perception of the world, the artist distills light and colour into stunningly rendered stripes. Waved, faded and pure, the outcome are pieces both calmly meditative and excitingly vivid. Wyecliffe Galleries are privileged to share an insight in to the mind of this emerging artist.
Nature-inspired artist Becky Smith and abstract-creator, Kate Taylor both share an insight into their creative process as well as starting out or developing your own style inn exclusive interviews by Wyecliffe Galleries.
