Brook Hobbins

From the Edgware Road to the southeast edge of England, via the snow belt of upstate New York, my sculptural journey has taken the scenic route. On the way I have been a plasterer, a teacher, a landscape architect, and now, again, a studio based sculptor.

Portrait sculpture is my core practice. It feeds into my parallel preoccupation with the depiction of the figure in space: in two dimensions through observational and imaginative drawing, in three dimensions through narrative sculpture, and in the strange and compelling form of relief sculpture – which hovers between dimensions.
