Archer, his material, his stone, stands not for a nature we can be at home in, but for the stasis of death and the blind permanence of the earth. (Neil Fox, University of Essex)

About

Michael Dan Archer describes his practice as dealing with materials ranging from massiveness and density of stone to the transcendence and intensity of light. The RBS sculpture forecourt will feature two works by Archer, one an Untitled work made of stone examines symbolism and the idea of portals that deal with transformation, crossing of borders and entry into other worlds and realities. The second sculpture, Beacon is a light piece which deals with intensity of the visual experience, the psychological or spiritual role of light in our consciousness. On occasion both these concepts collide and stimulate a visual conversation of ideas, thoughts and associations. A selection of smaller sculptures by Archer will be featured in the Salon gallery from 22 April - 10 September and these will reflect similar concepts. Wall mounted neon sculptures will be juxtaposed against works in cast iron, marble and combined work in marble and glass. Artist Talk: Wednesday 5 May 2010 6.30 - 8.30 pm FREE
