British sculptor Stuart Anderson works in clay or wax and casts his own bronzes using the lost wax process. He was a recipient of the Henry Moore Foundation grant, Voya Kondick Trust grant and Angeloni Prize at the Royal College of Art. He has made extensive further sculptural research in India, Cambodia, Italy and Greece.
In his work he aims to convey the vitality of the living body (animal or human) in strong sculptural forms. He is often drawn to the elegant shapes created by greyhounds and horses at play or relaxing. He models from life, bringing these fine animals into his studio (or studio yard). He has a particular interest in the place of the horse in art history and how it can act as a metaphor for the forces of nature; in all its power and beauty, but also its vulnerability.
Anderson has exhibited widely across England and has completed many commissions including a life size horse for Jeffrey Archer.
