Buying sculpture



Anthony Heywood

Anthony’s concern for natural resources is self-evident in the use of particular materials and by using recycled and sustainable methods of manufacture, it signals to the audience how we embody our personal values as we support our very existence. He intends the sculptures to identify notions of the classicism of consumption, ostentation and material value centred upon a cultural and spiritual identity. The sculptures capture classical form made from the used and useless, discarded relics of mass consumption, timbers, paints, varnishes, stone and other discarded building materials, all of which once stood for notions of civic pride and personal ownership. His engagement with the environment is through witnessing how our buildings and atmosphere are subject to environmental changes and human intervention. The sculptures admit to the fascination of the material objects but also seek to question the depth and consistency of our civic values. The sculptures have an intimate engagement with our formal arrangements of space as he juxtaposes upcycled surplus building materials with classical form.
