Patrick Hurst MRSS
Practicing in rural Hertfordshire, Patrick Hurst graduated with a BA in Fine Art from Cardiff School of Art and Design in 2011. It was here that he found his passion for sculpture. He is a highly skilled fabricator and this knowledge of process and material combined with his practical skill are the basis for his practice. Having grown up in rural Hertfordshire his connection to the natural world and the abstract sensibility to his work create a harmonious juxtaposition of hard finely fabricated works, colour, form and material finish with the natural environment.
Hurst has previously been commissioned to make sculptures for Viking Cruises, Professional Assured Financial Services and the Royal Horticultural Society. Hurst has exhibited at PaperCuts at the Saatchi Gallery, London, (2018) Affordable Art Fair, London and Bruxelles, (respectively in the years of 2013 and 2018), NordArt, Germany (2016), Recent Graduates Exhibition, London (2013), London, Sculptural, Dorset (2015), The RHS Chelsea Flower Show, London (2016-2015) and numerous other group shows both internationally and across the UK.He's currently showing his piece HORA VITRUM (2019) at the Royal Society of Sculptors Summer Show.
He is a director of Changing Spaces in Cambridge, an artist lead group finding unused retail spaces for exhibitions and artist projects.
