Meet Jacob Chandler, Sculptor
Meet the artist and workshop opportunities this month.
Chandler’s work focuses on the most dramatic point of an action, be it physical or mental. This tipping point resonates, as after being forced to defer his formal study of architecture by ill health, the tide turned and his passion became a career.
This reversal of fortunes led Chandler to work directly with industry experts, from CAD and manufacture to gallerists and other successful artists.
Due to this unconventional route into the art world, the techniques employed are unusual, with fabrications from wooden panels and the use of sand-able resin to form the crisp edged, smooth faced, multi faceted sculptures.
Chandler’s unique style has led to recognition in the art world and with just a few years working professionally he has exhibited in capital cities across the globe, been
highly commended by Royal societies and is currently undertaking a major public commission.
The inspiration for his works come from the greats of sculpture, from Subirachs and Naum Gabo with their geometric portrayals to Giacometti and the Futurists with their desire to capture movement.
