‘Viola’ by Andrew Thomas SWAc at Whitewater Contemporary, Polzeath

Whitewater Contemporary Polzeath presents work by artist Andrew Thomas from his sculptural Instrument series. Thomas is a member of the South West Academy of Fine and Applied Arts, and works from his studio in the Isle of Purbeck, Dorset. Initially carving his designs in wood, he explores the form and subject of each piece with technical precision and an artist’s subjective eye, before casting his sculptures in bronze. He is also a published author, who has written prolifically on the subject of woodcarving and sculpture. 

“I have worked incredibly hard over decades to develop my understanding of form in relation to concept or subject matter,” says Andrew. “I work primarily in wood, using the deconstruction process of carving to explore the infinite possibilities of form within the block. All my works are cast in bronze metal, which offers the permanence of a medium that can be experienced and treasured for generations to come.”
