About

In reponse to the changing art market, Axle Arts has teamed up with Tasburgh House Hotel to mount an exhibition of outdoor sculpture and ceramics on their elegant terraces overlooking Bath. A carefully selected body of work there will be bronze, steel, concrete and ceramic sculpture outside on the terrace, and raku ceramics, smaller bronzes, oil painting and original print inside the hotel. Exhibiting artists are:

Sculpture by Dorothy Brook, Marc Bodie, Ian Edwards, John Huggins RWA FRBS,
Rick Kirby

Ceramics by Neill Curran, Rhian Jones, Mick Morgan, Tamsyn Trevorrow

Painting by Lynne Cartlidge RCA

Original Print by Corinna Button RE and Sumi Perera RE

Marc Bodie works in bronze and concrete, using his own body and face as reference for his larger than life busts and sculptures. Bodie's multi-layered work explores expressions of human distress and fragility experienced in many facets of our lives, including marginalisation. Dorothy Brook looks at movement, her sculptures capture the grace and beauty of dance with a clear and bold line, and are cast in bronze. Ian Edwards inspirational bronzes depict the strength and courage of endurance and achievements despite all. Rhian Jones is an emerging ceramic artist, hand building vessels which are smoke fired and present Japanese Kintsugi in a new light. Mick Morgan, an established ceramic artist, is based in Wales and hand builds large stoneware vessels inspired by the female form. Rick Kirby creates stainless and mild steel sculptures inspired by the human form, often creating over-sized views. Cornish based Tamsyn Trevorrow's ceramics are inspired by the textures and colours found along her local, native coastline.
