George Cutts

British Sculptor

When I left the Royal College of Art, having studied figurative modelling and stone carving, I began wrapping stainless steel in carved stone, which I have continued throughout my career. The opposing materials with such diverse textural qualities interplay, emphasising my ideas. I play one off against the other, which I have taken through into my mobiles, the reaction creating optical illusions, playing with shapes in space. The inspiration and theme for all my sculptures is landscape, plant growth, light and water.
