With over 25 years’ experience as a professional sculptor/site specific artist, Richard Thornton has completed more than 45 public art commissions for a variety of private, local authority and individual clients, including the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham, University of Bradford, Bio City in Nottingham and Midlands Air Ambulance.

Alongside his commissioned work he has continually developed his own practice producing collections of work exploring techniques from bronze casting to construction and focusing on subjects from the human body to abstraction to organic forms.

 

He has recently presented his work at various shows including the British Council, Delhi; University of Leicester summer exhibition; Doddington Hall Biennial Sculpture show and a one man show at Abbeywalk gallery.

 

Currently a member of the Royal British Society of Sculptors, Richard was educated at Kingston and Nottingham Trent universities and served as sculptor fellow at the University of Exeter before teaching at various Higher Education institutions.

 

Professor Jim Hunter has said that:

“Richard constructs his sculptures in aluminium, stainless steel and glass materials of surface and edge that come alive with light and reflection. These abstract forms create a balance between organic elegance and engineered integrity.”
