The Artist - Daniel Cordell
I live in Mid Devon and display my work and attend events internationally, gaining many awards. Since I graduated my sculpture degree in 2001, I have chosen large scale wood sculpture as my means of expression. I deliberately carve my 'Dwellings' in a rough and unsymmetrical way. I feel this sketchy appearance better describes my fondness for old buildings that wear their signs of use, weathering, repair and extension.
When I carve groups of buildings they evolve, like a sketch, without a plan. One just fits in or joins another. Just how many settlements evolve over time.
