New Artist: Clare Ferguson-Walker

We’ve got a brand new artist coming into the gallery, Clare creates bronze sculptures using her own personal experiences of the human condition to inspire her surreal fantasy like, image creations.

For her art is a passive, silent way of breaking into people’s minds and hearts. The work comes directly from her imagination, that raw conduit between the sub-conscious and what we loosely describe as reality, which of course is only a matter of perception anyway…

Please view her striking images below and for more information please feel free to contact the gallery for more information.

“King Midas and his Touch”

Original Sculpture: Hand Painted Bronze Resin, Edition of 25
Dimensions: W:17″ x H:16″ x D:7″
£2250 or 12 monthly instalments of just £187.50 (interest free) 

Inspired by the classic tale, this piece looks at the notion of greed and how it can destroy us and those around us. When the desire for riches comes before love, we have become nothing but slaves to our own neediness. Only when we loose what is often taken for granted will we see that money cant love us in return.

“Clockwork Heart”

Original Sculpture: Hand Painted Bronze Resin, Edition of 25
Dimensions: W:27″ x H:22″ x D:15″
Price: £3000 or 18 monthly instalments of £166 (Interest Free)

Through self reflection the artist found that childhood conditioning arising from society via her parents and school has created a kind of mechanical system inside. A set of rules that have made individuals almost robotic in their responses.

“Centaur”

Medium: Hand Painted Bronze Resin
Dimensions: W:17″ x H:16″ x D:5″
Price: £1450 or 10 monthly instalments of £145 (Interest Free)

A creature combining the physicality and strength of a horse and the delicate beauty of a woman. Totally at one with its on nature, self reliant and unquestioning.

“I see this piece as a representation of a psychological state that I aspire to achieve. I was born in the year of the horse and have always felt akin to them in some way, I hate being boxed in and a desire for freedom is very much at my core”.

“The Lonely King”

Original Sculpture: Hand Painted Bronze Resin Edition of 25
Dimensions: W:9″ H:16″ D:9″
Price: £1950 or 10 monthly instalments of £195 (Interest Free)

This archetypal character represents the potential loneliness associated with power and the responsibility therein. For the artist the king is not a king but her father, the most influential masculine presence in her and in most peoples lives. Most comfortable in his own company, deeply unsure of how to share himself emotional he has made himself an island.
