Wood, Metal


Richard Goldsworthy creates sculptural works in wood and cast metal exploring the fusion of contrasting materials. Inspired by his own metal spine support, Richard’s practice combining these materials is a natural extension of his transformative experience after a debilitating back injury.     The process of acquiring green wood plays a pivotal role in Richard’s artistic practice. Through carving, sanding, and burning, he introduces striking contrasts that unveil, accentuate, and celebrate the natural characteristics and perceived flaws of the wood. It is a delicate equilibrium between his creative input and restraint, allowing the materials to find their own voice and leave their distinctive mark.    Richard holds a BA in Sculpture from Edinburgh College of Art. He has exhibited regularly since graduating in both group and solo exhibitions including The Scottish Gallery (Edinburgh) and Royal Scottish Academy (Edinburgh).
