Our Sculptors

Richard Gant MRSS

Drawing and Sculpture play integral roles in my work. Landscape as both site and concept are realised in both traditional and contemporary making processes.

My international sculptural research has been by both exhibition and text publication. As a former Head of Fine Art at Liverpool School of Art (2000-2010) and a full time professional in Higher Arts Education to PhD level since 1979, I continue to explore the landscape to generate ideas and inspiration.
Enriched by my fully-sponsored doctoral Fellowship field research at the Point of Ayr Gas Terminal (1994-96) I render transferable extensive academic knowledge and professionalism explored within the joint fields of art and management science. Publications include peer reviewed business models of art and motivation, placement activity and major sculptural site installation. I have received commissions from institutions including Tate Liverpool. 
My sculpture encompasses a wide range of skills,materials and processes. Often working from drawing to maquette, ideas have set in both field and gallery contexts. Contextual international drawing publications form an important part of my research.
Current work references field drawings based upon the pillow lava outcrops at Newborough Warren, Anglesey in conjunction with the Hunstanton Cliffs of N.Norfolk.

I continue to work in my loft studio and share my work through school visits, exhibitions and international sculptural events.
