Sculptor Gary Scott works between his studio in Englefield Green, Surrey and Cornwall. His work has been widely exhibited including at ING Discerning Eye, the Cork Street Open, KPMG’s Canary Wharf headquarters and can be seen in the gardens at Waterperry House, Oxford. Scott has undertaken a number of commissions including the memorial sculpture ‘Free Spirit’ now situated in the heart of St Ives in Cornwall and publically visible. In 2013 he won the Art Academy’s Mixed Media Sculpture Prize and was shortlisted for the Threadneedle Prize. The life model often dancers are generally Gary’s initial inspiration for his figurative works - beginning with the anatomy and an appreciation of the human form, he then moves on to the interpretation of the strong lines running through a figure. Gary now works mainly with direct plaster which he then casts in bronze resulting in works which are expressive and have a feeling of life and energy.
