Tim Corke is an emerging artist who carves beautiful abstract sculptures. He enjoys the spontaneity and creative energy of abstract forms and his sculptures are a reflection of the emotional energy which goes into their creation.
Tim's first sculptures, exhibited in the Summer Exhibition 2015, were a series of Hepworth-inspired, classical forms carved from natural stone. His work has subsequently developed and he is now focussed on a new body of work carved from Alabaster. These forms enhance the natural qualities of this translucent stone in a way that epitomises Henry Moore's philosophy: "Truth to Materials
". His skill is in bringing out the best of each piece of stone and giving it a unique identity by making critical decisions about how to work it, what to remove and what to add.
Tim undertook an MA in Art & Design at Writtle College, Essex and prior to that he studied for a BSc in Landscape and Garden Design.
His latest body of work will be exhibited at Sculpt Gallery in a debut Solo Show from 27 Oct - 18 Nov 2017.
