Exhibition - 1st Feb to 18 Feb = Artsite in Swindon
Old Town based artist and sculptor Toby Robson will be showing his latest exhibition 'FeAl' at The Post Modern Gallery from Tuesday, February 1st to Friday February 18th 2011
Toby specialises in metal casting in aluminium and iron and has a small workshop and foundry near Devizes.
"The exhibition itself is a follow on to some work I exhibited at Belgravia Lettings last year. Some of it reflects my experiences over a very difficult couple of years, others pieces reflect my interest in organic forms, and throughout I've played with different casting techniques to create a range of effects and finishes. The name 'FeAl' is both a pun on process of creation and of the chemical symbols for my two favourite mediums."
The exhibition serves as preparation for this summer, where Toby's been given the chance in a lifetime lifetime offer to cast and install a large scale iron sculpture at the internationally famous Sculpture Trails outdoor museum in Solsbury, Indiana.
The Post Modern Gallery will be open from 11.00 to 4.00pm weekdays and Saturdays (private views can be arranged outside these hours by appointment).
