THE GALLERY RE-OPENS TO VISITORS ON SATURDAY 11 JULY. A MAXIMUM OF 4 PEOPLE WILL BE PERMITTED IN THE GALLERY AT ANY ONE TIME.
11 - 18 July. An exciting exhibition of maquettes and sketches by Robert Erskine FRSS OBA, featuring unique studies for some of his landmark public sculptures which have been awarded the status of 'permanent monuments' by The Public Monuments Sculpture Association and The Courtauld Institute.
Robert Erskine is an English sculptor, designer and broadcaster, known for his monumental public sculptures.
Completing his post-graduate studies under Professor Reg Butler at the Slade School of Fine Art, London, Erskine continued to work from studios in London until 2014. He now lives and works in Suffolk, and is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Sculptors, and a recipient of the Otto Beit Award (OBA) for outstanding public sculpture.
Erskine describes his passion for engineering, industry and nature as the main influences informing his work, together with a hands-on approach as being essential to developing his ideas. Unlike many of his contemporaries, he fabricates and casts his own work.
Erskine has created one-off sculptures and landmark elements for commercial, public and regeneration schemes. His work is also held in public and private collections worldwide, and he is a visiting lecturer in the UK and overseas.
His work in the areas of product, industrial and architectural design include several patents, and since the early 1990s, he has been a motoring broadcaster and journalist on the American weekly, live radio show 'Autolab'. This hybrid background in sculpture, design and engineering, and passion for cars, brings particular focus to design, technology innovation and education.
