The Artist - Derek Cadle SWS
Derek came to sculpture following retirement from a hectic career as a hospital consultant in Intensive Care Medicine. Such an involved association with the human form has influenced his work and this is reflected in detailed observation of both human and animal forms. Although his work is mainly figurative it also includes large botanical pieces such as the patinated copper Virginia Creeper exhibited this year. Media generally include bronze, wood, wire and mixed media. Derek is always prepared to experiment with new materials in order to provide additional interest and variety.
