Niagara Galleries presents work by Robert Bridgewater.
Bridgewater’s carved and incised wooden sculptures can be monumental, or delicate in scale; requiring from the artist brute force and strength, but also patience and care. Whether timber, or bronze, the surfaces of Bridgewater’s sculptures proudly display the methodical marks of the artist’s hand, retaining their link to the labour of production and more broadly to historical traditions of object making.
He transforms patterns from a wide range of cultural sources into repeated motifs, affording his work an archetypal quality, one that is immediately engaging.
