Julian's work explores the potential of functional materials and construction systems and the expressive possibilities of a single line or a series of units. Each work is an investigation into the semiotics of the material that he is using.
Working across a diverse range of materials from clay and glass through to stainless steel, the physical possibilities of each material is pushed to its limit in the objects that he makes.� Interaction between objects and people are a repeated theme, from social alienation to the behaviour of crowds.
In 2005 he was short-listed for the Jerwood Sculpture Prize and has recently been commissioned to make public sculptures for: Millfield School, The Cass Sculpture Foundation, Crest Nicholson, Wyeth Europa, Schroders Investment Management, Radley College Oxford and The Jerwood Sculpture Park and Sculpture in the Parklands in Ireland.
At our sculpture garden this season Julian will be carrying out live sculpting events involving members of the public, open woodland and free expression. If you would like to learn more then please contact us for details.
