Wycliffe Stutchbury


Wycliffe Stutchbury’s delicate landscapes are studies in texture, colour and process. He is led by the nature of the material, its textures, fissures and colours, and he maintains an intuitive approach, rather like stacking firewood. The work is an expression of wood’s fragile and yet robust ability to document the past.  Each piece is constructed in discarded, found or forgotten timber sourced from one location, that place providing the title for the work.
