Biography / CV of Barry Sutton

Barry Sutton`s Biography
I gained me degree in Sculpture at Leicester in the mid 70`s doing large figurative pieces. As my work had drawn on natural history themes for some years it was a logical progression to work as a model makler at the Natural History Museum, enabling me to produce my own sculpture in tandem with museum projects.

As a result I was able to study anatomy and various preservation techinques a crucial faxtor if one does not want to create the obnoxious odour Stubbs was reputed to have produced.

Having a good knowledge of anatomy in a purely scientific way has, I feel, helped me to produce impressions of animals in life or death by enabling me to be inventive with form without compromising the inner rationale of the animals.

"The problem of contemporary sculpture and the garden is one which has rankled in my mind for years. It is usually resolved through a process of inversion-that is turning it into sculpture in the garden as against garden sculpture. By that I mean the sculptor takes over the garden as an open exhibition gallery, of which the focus is their creation, to which the world of nature merely provides the frame.The Idea that sculpture is a contributory element to an overall'mise en scene',in which, sometimes its role may be incedental rather than central, has been lost.In this we have seen the betrayall of the great tradition of garden sculpture, one which was unashamed at being decorative or delightful."
