Conversations in Sculpture, which can be seen from Saturday, July 6 until Saturday, September 28, will feature work by Dr Jeremy Turner, Deputy Head of the University’s Department of Art and Design.

The exhibition brings together a range of work from members in the North and Midlands.

Jeremy started making sculpture early in his career with his two broad areas of interest defining his practice. The first is a fascination with the manipulation of materials and an engagement with the process central to making. The second is an interest in the ideas, stories, texts and so on that inform the process of thinking about the making of the work and how this influences how the work looks.

Inspiration for the pieces in the whole exhibition come from the themes of identity, isolation, history and ecology through to colour, light, space, construction and deconstruction. Materials used include traditional methods such as bronze and stone through to light, augmented reality, film and performance through to plastic and building materials.

The Royal Society of Sculptors is a charity that is a home for sculpture and sculptors. To become a member, artists must have a professional practice with critical integrity and distinctive visual quality and must be approved by a panel of their peers.

Jeremy said: “I'm interested in making objects that, whilst referencing the structures, systems and strategies of the world, maintain a certain aloofness to it. I'm interested in them simultaneously fitting with and grating against our common and everyday experience.

“It is a pleasure to have my work exhibited alongside such talented artists from across the North and the Midlands.”

The exhibition is free to enter and is open from Tuesdays to Saturdays from 11am to 4pm at the Huddersfield Art Gallery, Princess Alexandra Walk, Huddersfield HD1 2SU.
