Summer Exhibition 2018

From June the High Performance Art Gallery will be displaying new works by Danni Bradford, William Rochfort, Michael Speller, Richard Thornton and Jill Berelowitz.

Richard Thornton will be displaying large scale organic steel sculptures in both the Gallery and the BA First Wing Check-In.

Below Richard speaks about his practice and 'No.206 Ascent':

"As a sculptor my work comes from an observation of the simplicity and elegance of the natural world.

In making, I explore the confluence of engineering and sculptural form.

Ascent, embodies the physical act of ‘ascending’ but also reflects the fundamental grace and flow of the concept of flight."

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.
