The Artist - Richard Cresswell
This year I find that my inspiration remain the same, nature and beautiful curves shapes and movement you find everywhere as you look at this world we inhabit, but I have had to come up with some new ways of working as my body keeps reminding me Im older than I used to be. I have been developing new pieces which are still large in scale but made either made up of small elements or in lighter materials which are easier to manipulate. I have also revisited a couple of older pieces this year with new materials and finishes giving them a completely new feel like Teardrop in patinated steel you decide? Creating large scale kinetic pieces which please me is what I do quite well and always result in them having a calm and natural feel which it seems others also find appealing. I have started work on some new pieces for 2022 one is involving many dozens of elements so keep an eye out and see what the finished work turns out like. Hopefully 2022 will see us all working out how to live a new normal as we live with the various challenges thrown at us and we can all get out and about to exhibitions and shows again
