Geoff Rushton

Geoff Rushton defines his sculpting process as a meditative one. He works without a plan, striving to allow the sculpture to create itself. Geoff sees his creations as 'entities' existing not as images or representations, but as plants and creatures which hold their own presence.

The vast majority of his materials are gathered from the North Yorkshire countryside surrounding his studio. Wind fallen trees, stones, old iron, tools and machinery are all given new life through Geoff’s creative process. Simultaneously, these materials already have a history and a unique character which enhance the life of his sculptures. Geoff uses a combination of tools, techniques and media to create his fascinating and intricate work.
