Share the artistic discoveries made by winners of the 2012 Brian Mercer Residencies
This exhibition showcases the work produced by the winners of the Royal British Society of Sculptors’ 2012 Brian Mercer Residencies: Mark Richards FRBS, who was awarded the stone-carving residency, and Hex ARBS, who won the bronze-casting residency.
As part of each programme, Richards and Hex worked with master craftsmen in Pietrasanta, Italy for three months to expand their skills, extend their boundaries and develop their practice. This exhibition offers a rare opportunity to view works in progress and reveals and celebrates the artists’ discoveries during their residencies.
“The Brian Mercer Stone Carving Award is not just a wonderful opportunity to explore and carve marble with the help of experts in a supportive and stimulating environment. It is a chance to take time away from the pressures of daily life; a time to try new things.” Mark Richards FRBS
“Pietrasanta is a terrific place to work. Nowhere in the world do you find such a concentration of highly skilled artisans and such a quality of material that inspires you just when you walk through it.” Hex ARBS
