Featured Artists 2021 - Brendon Murless
Symonds & Sampson are continuing to feature artwork on the covers of their collective property auction catalogues during 2021. This striking sculpture by Brendon Murless has been chosen for the catalogue for the auction on 24 September.
Winds of Change VI
Brendon creates sculptures for both indoor and outdoor settings, which range from small mantlepiece sized to large scale, garden and public sculptures.
Taking inspiration from the human form and beauty within nature, his work explores the body in different forms, poses and materials, emphasising the integral connection between humans and nature. While he starts his sculptures with an idea or theme, he also leave them open to interpretation by the viewer. Brendon’s sculptures are either unique pieces or limited editions and combine the understanding, knowledge and love of a vast range of materials and techniques in bronze, copper, wood, stone and resins.
For each piece of new work he starts with an idea, but is open to continual exploration of materials to marry them with the desired form. The material informs the shape and finish that the final piece takes.
Brendon continues to develop his passion and knowledge of sculpture, materials and the human form. Over the years he has secured a wide variety of commissions from private and public clients, with work in galleries and collections across the country.
You can enjoy Brendon's work locally at Sou Sou West Gallery at Symondsbury and Bridport Sculture Trail, and further afield at The Cotswold Sculpture Park, The Sculpture Park in Surrey, Borde Hill Gardens in West Sussex and Harold Hillier Gardens in Hampshire.
