Surrey Sculpture Society Exhibition
at Birtley House, Bramley 2017
This year, the first Surrey Sculpture Society Exhibition is taking place at Birtley House, Bramley. Adam Aaronson is exhibiting exciting new sculpture there until June 4th 2017 as part of the Surrey Hills Sculpture Garden exhibition. Adam has been a member of the Surrey Sculpture Society since moving to West Horsley four years ago.
“Crowdscene” by Adam Aaronson
This artwork comprises a number of unique elements exhibited together. Adam describes his thinking behind the work as follows:
“Crowds have their own critical mass, but they are full of individuals. I often wonder whether there is much difference between the crowd of commuters at a railway station during rush hour and a crowd of refugees. Each individual has a story to tell. Invariably their stories are similar. Their ambition, whatever their background, is to establish a stable, secure future for themselves and their families. Is there really much difference between a refugee and a commuter? Could it be simply that the commuter has achieved a greater level of stability in their life?
“In creating ‘Crowdscene’, I have deliberately left a sense of ambiguity in the forms that I have used. Intentionally, I’ve left the viewer wondering what these elements are. They could be flowers, birds, fish, faces, caricatures, puppets or simply abstract glass shapes. The figures are not intended to be literal but are designed to resonate differently with each onlooker. They are all created as unique, stand-alone sculptures, but you can group them together. I see them as rugged individuals, with their own personalities, but they can live together in harmony!”
We supply each sculpture with its own detachable stainless steel post. If you would prefer to position the sculpture on a wall or plinth, Adam can adapt the fitting.
You can purchase the one-of a kind sculptures in Crowdscene from the exhibition. They cost £350 each, which includes the fittings and post. The sculptures are easy to install.
