I am an avid reader of David Buckingham’s work, which has been helpul for my own research, and I am proud to say that he supervised my MA dissertation. Unexpectedly I found another David Buckingham, who produces this great artwork, sculptures cut and welded out of found metal. I love the kind of energy it has, very constrained in some way, but powerful and strong. And these fantastic colours! Below is a great photograph of him working, from the flash page of his website. I guess this is the thing with sculptures of metal, the sheer physical strenght and power that goes into it.
I really wished I had the cash to buy the Charlie don’t surf piece for my beloved hubby, and he knows why.
