Jesmonite or Bronze Resin on Bathstone
The Artist - Martin Staniforth
My creative practice focuses on emergence, regeneration and natural progression, experimenting with forms falling down and rising up again. I am also intrigued by the notion of vulnerability and how this is often masked with statements of apparent confidence and certainty. This makes me curious as to how we express the masculine, the feminine and the human. After the Royal Clarence Hotel fire in 2017, I created a 4-metre high ‘Hope & Renewal’ sculpture that was sited on Exeter Cathedral Green. ‘Resurgo’ will take its place this summer. I am currently the chair of the South West Sculptors Association.
