SUMMERFIELD, Christopher W

c.1968 - ?

Chris studied for his MA at The Royal College of Art where he assisted with the sculptor Henry Moore’s work. Having spent some years teaching in higher education, most recently at Norwich University of the Arts, sculptor Chris Summerfield is now focusing on his own creative work. His work is a response to both the natural and the manufactured world, between abstraction and representation, often producing 'toy-like' hybrids which echo the dreamlike world of childhood. He is exploring digital photography as an outcome for his artwork but continues to produce sculptures, but not exclusively exhibiting those in a gallery. The sculptural object is sometimes a transitional phase in the creative process which he has exhibited at Pilchard Palace Gallery St Ives, Cornwall. He works from The Cut, Halesworth, Suffolk. www.stanleypickergallery.org
