Edward Willis

“I think of my sculptures as suspended animations, lying at rest, waiting for a passing breeze to breathe life into them.”

Now living and working in Bath, Edward has a degree in philosophy from Bristol University and in his mobiles and kinetic sculptures he explores ideas of fragility and strength as well as balance and resolution. Drawing inspiration from the natural world and the human figure, his work is often suggestive of skeletal structures, in the abstract. The pieces have a sense of harmony, rhythm and progression and are intended to be enjoyed both as elegant, striking forms as well as objects for contemplation and meditation. Whilst each sculpture outwardly appears to express a settled tranquillity, it actually relies for its existence on the internal tensions resulting from the pull of one part against every other in a kind of dynamic equilibrium.

As well as undertaking commissions, Edward’s work sells in galleries throughout the UK and he takes part in exhibitions with the Bath Society of Artists and in Open Studio networks.
