The Way of All Flesh
Jamie Frost

9 February – 9 March
Opening 7:30pm Friday 8 February

The Way of All Flesh presents an exhibition of elegantly crafted and powerful figurative sculptures. Artist Jamie Frost brings the tradition of wood carving into a contemporary gallery setting. The smell, textures and colours of the sculptures make this exhibition a multi-sensory experience, where bark, saw marks and energetic splinters contrast with fine craftsmanship.

'Wood is a fleshy material and I want the visitor to have a sense of the figures I make, not just see them. In their presence it's hard, even for me, not to feel something when looking them in the eye. Whilst making I think about the people I draw, the people I've known, the person I am. I invite people to identify with these sculptures - an affinity with the material should make that possible.' Jamie Frost

Into the Wild - David Mayne

Into the Wild - David Mayne

The extraordinarily talented sculptor David Mayne will be bringing his fantastic metal work to the gallery.

Since graduating from Sheffield Polytechnic in 1986 David Mayne has developed his work from raw assemblage with found objects to the much more refined pieces he now creates. One thing has remained constant – the use of metal. David started using steel after visiting one of the (then) many scrap yards in Sheffield and was instantly drawn to the colour and texture of discarded metal.

David has a lifelong passion with nature and landscape – from early days of climbing and hill walking to mountain biking and fell running. He now lives in Holmfirth near areas of stunning woodland and wild and beautiful hills and moorland. The work he now creates is a response to this landscape and his past adventures within it.

When he is not working on exhibitions and private commissions, Mayne continues his practice as a sculptor working in the public realm, creating landmark features for local authorities, visitor centres, large scale PLCs and health trusts. Clients include Carilion Civil Engineering, Taylor Wimpey, British Waterways, Marks and Spencer,
Leeds University and the sustainable transport charity Sustrans.
