Wycliffe Stutchbury（British, b.1965）
Exploring wood as an artistic medium
My compositions from fallen and forgotten timber are studies in the narrative beauty of wood. They are made to reveal timbers’ response to its environment over time. Its unfashioned beauty, durability and vunerability.
The origin of the material I use is central to my work. Whether it be discarded floorboards from a Victorian terraced house, a garden fence, a branch of Sycamore found on the floor of the scrub that fringes the fields of the Sussex Downs or a 40 year old Oak gate post, the sense of place is very important.
