Event description

Description

In the first week of his exhibition at Mary Place, come along to a guided tour and talk by the British sculptor Dominic Welch. Dominic is part of a rich legacy of British sculptors working primarily in stone.

Dominic followed a traditional but unexpected route into making sculpture. During a period of reflection before embarking on a geography degree he placed a rather speculative advert looking for an arts-based apprenticeship. This lead quickly to a meeting with the sculptor Peter Randall-Page with whom he subsequently worked as an assistant for ten years before striking out on his own.


Continually evolving his distinct sense of abstraction, Welch realises solid, yet fluid forms in Kilkenny limestone, Ancaster Weatherbed, Carrara marble and bronze. Rooted in the natural world, his purity of form is inspired by the organic logic of seeds, pods, shells and fish, suggesting natural harmonies that both calm the senses and spark the imagination.
