READING GUILD OF ARTISTS

Picture of the Month

December 2019
by Roger Smalley

bug like creature

Untitled

I recently went to visit Roger's workshop to understand more about what's involved in carving stone, and I was struck by the sheer quantity of creations I saw there. Perched all over the walls and on the inside of the doors were numerous quirky compilations of found objects alongside his more familiar carved pieces, many in progress.

This particular sculpture that I have chosen for Picture of the Month warms the heart and brings a smile to my face when I see it. The curious non-specificity of the creature makes the viewer look to the feeling of the work. It's effect is direct and uncomplicated.

Chosen from our Online Art Gallery by Sadie Brockbank
