Conrad Shawcross’s practice explores ideas that cross the borders between physics, geometry and philosophy. Working in a range of media and scales, his sculptures range from small handheld pieces through to monumental site-specific public commissions.
Shawcross often uses materials which weather over time; in this case, black oak gives an organic quality. Here, several pyramids are tessellated together to create a complex geometric form. It is reminiscent of a meteor which has shot through the earth’s atmosphere, reflecting the key themes of splitting and evolution investigated by Shawcross’s practice.
Shawcross’s work has been exhibited internationally in numerous solo and group exhibitions and is held in numerous notable public collections. He was elected to the Royal Academy in 2013. He lives and works in London.
