Brett Banks

Location: East London
Bio:

I work primarily in Stone and Wood, taught initially by way of adult education classes for Wood carving and workshops with Zimbabwean Sculptors for Stone carving.
For the Stone Sculptures, the inspiration comes mostly from looking at the raw stone, playing with it to see what emerges and sometimes by way of a 'happy accident', which happens due to an internal fault and the stone splits. Whereas with wood its the grain which you have to contend with.
