About Gus Farnes

 
 
  • Biography

    Gus Farnes is a Suffolk based artist creating emotive sculptures in reaction to the experiences faced by many on a daily basis.

    In their representation of the dispossessed, the stateless, the refugee and the homeless his figures are a personification of the modern diaspora.

    The sculptures are crafted from the materials of their environments and – much like their subject matter – are both shaped and constrained by those environments. 

    These materials – grass, leaves, flowers, reeds and rushes – are gathered from the urban and rural landscapes in which they grow and then bound in wax and sculpted. Each piece is then cast directly into bronze creating a unique, individual sculpture.
