Anthony Heywood

The impact of Anthony’s work has been consistent throughout his career, and he has generated regional, national and international coverage because of the nature of his work. It involves using ready-mades natural materials and household detritus. This generates a particular aesthetic which challenges the observer’s perception of beauty. This has created public, press and media interest.

The Stag’s Head

‘the stag’s head’ 1994- painted bronze forms; The aim of this work is to examine whether the world wide complicity with the idea of consuming both nature and manufactured objects has had any effect the political and social reception of his work, and to ask whether it has distanced and debilitated the social role of the artist. It’s purpose is too engaged in employing recycled and sustainable materials, household objects ready-mades which I consider will challenge the audience through use of subject, the function of materials, scale and context of display.
