AboutObsessive and experimental, Kevin Osmond transforms the mundane into the mesmeric, providing an escape from the realities of everyday life into an idyllic universe. In his forthcoming exhibition, Viewfinder, at William Angel Gallery, Osmond creates his visionary âscapes' and explosive structures from everyday components, such as chopsticks, in an attempt to help explain the world around us.
Osmond builds up complexity and interrelation from the repetition and adaptation of simple forms. Influenced by landscape and space, his artwork explores cloud formations, water droplets, topographical configurations, celestial explosions and galaxies as if seen through a viewfinder.
Much of Osmond's sculpture is naturally kinetic, for example, Constellation Series. He also has a strong interest in the representation of space, one of the few areas that have never ceased to captivate mankind. This interest has not only been represented in sculpture, but in two-dimensional works such as Spiral Series, an investigation of galaxies in space through meticulous and meditative drawing. Similarly, the three-dimensional work Vapourscape considers another of the worlds most intriguing and aesthetically pleasing peculiarities, that of the vapour trails that regularly crisscross our skyline.
Kevin currently lives and works in South-east London, England, and has exhibited Internationaly. He is the recipient of a number of high profile awards, including the Mark Tanner Sculpture Award, the Credit Suisse First Boston Sculpture Prize and the Penguin Books Sculpture Prize. He has worked on both large and fine detailed work for public and private commissions, including The Royal London Hospital and The Economist.
