Charles Walker Hazzard FRSS
The artist is a traditional sculptor, meaning he undertakes the practical creation of his works; his figure sculptures are modelled in clay from observation of the life model and he explores contemporary issues affecting the human condition. The artist has produced a series of mobile structures either positioned hanging from the shoulders of his figure sculptures, or in the latter case, within the built environment. These structures show a degree of craft and artistry created in response to the architectural surrounding or in the case of the figure sculptures, the subject’s cultural, mental, physiological, or biological condition.
The artist’s studio practice is situated in the Vale of Evesham, Worcestershire. He held the position as the Henry Moore Sculpture Fellow at Loughborough University. The sculptor is a Fellow of the Royal Society of British Sculptors; Brother of the Art Workers Guild, and an ordinary member of the Design and Copyright Society.
