Luke Dickinson's work is concerned with marking progression on a personal level. The sculptures relate to natural forms and domestic objects without being either. The intention is to suggest something ancient while being new, light whilst having mass, purpose without being explicit. In his current body of work, he uses the translucence of thinly carved marble to illuminate and energise the form.
Born in 1964, Dickinson trained as a stonemason before working on Winchester and Salisbury Cathedrals. He then went on to study stone carving at City and Guilds of London Art School before embarking on an MA in Site Specific Sculpture at Wimbledon School of Art. He has worked in Carrara, Italy as well as completing a number of landscape projects in Zimbabwe, Pakistan and India. He has exhibited widely in the UK.
