David Annand MRSS
Annand has been a public artist and sculptor since leaving college in the early ‘70s. Most of his work is commissioned and in the public domain. He has worked throughout the UK and Eire where he has several public art works. In Perth, Scotland, he made a piece called Nae Day Sae Dark inspired by the late poet William Soutar. He says, “... each time I am commissioned I try to use a local poet. The poetry slows down passersby and helps them relate to the piece. I worked with Seamus Heaney on a piece in the Marie Curie Centre in Belfast and in Bellaghy.”
He has just finishied a large composition for Downpatrick and the Robert Dunlop Memorial in Northern Ireland. He has just started a larger than life sculpture of Cardinal Wolsey for Ipswich. All his sculptures are either in cast bronze or fabricated stainless steel.
