Note: Oliver Barratt has been exhibiting his sculpture for over 20 years, working mostly in steel, brass and bronze. Awarded a Henry Moore Fellowship in 1990, he has made works for numerous public locations, including unusual ones such as the Mount Everest Base Camp Memorial and the Liverpool City of Culture award, as well as works for private collections. The sources of his inspiration are partially in classis sculptors of the 19th century, such as Arp and partially in his personal thesis.
He comments: I make work that is simultaneously familiar and un-familiar, I find myself drawn to an imagined place where ‘what I know’ leads to ‘what I do not know’. My work bridges the gap between a clear and rational purpose and a ‘hunch’.
