Sculpture and drawings by Stephen Watts

I am a sculptor currently living in the UK. I have been carving stone since I was 6 yrs old, having the skills passed on to me by me grandfather Peter Watts FRBS. Peter was a sculptor in the Gill tradition with a firm belief that, while his work was clearly ‘of the 20th Century’, this was built on a continuity of tradition extending back to Romanesque and Medieval times. My key influences are both this tradition that I was born into, and the early 20th century sculpture movement in Britain, started by Barbara Hepworth and Henry Moore as well as others.

ANIMA LOC - spirit of the place

Me and my dad decided to make an Andy Goldsworthy style sculpture on the beach. It took us about a couple of hours. It was a magical feeling, working with the tide as the deadline. We watched it collapse into the sea. Each stone shaped by the ocean, we were just placing the stones in a different configuration.
