Arte Umbria is pleased to welcome Paula Haughney stone carver who is joining us 2020 - the year of our 10th Anniversary!
''I am a sculptor living and working in the East End of London for over thirty years. I trained as a sculptor but only discovered stone carving as a medium after I finished my formal art education and that was it. I found my voice. I joined courses and evening classes but have been mainly self-taught, learning continuously as I encounter new challenges and different stones.
Stone has captured me with its varieties, so many colours and textures, hard to soft. Stone carving is a craft to learn over many years, creating a platform to transform ideas into reality.
I mainly use the direct method of carving and my work portrays a vibrancy and immediacy retaining an essentially human scale and relationship.
Size doesn’t phase me, some sculptures being over 9 tonnes and 3 metres high .if it is for a specific place I like to carve the rock insitu so local people can witness its development.
Birds, animals, people all appear as subject matter.
I love the physical process of making sculpture. The object becomes the achievement.
My sculptures are found in many public places and have work in both private and public collections in Britain, Europe and America.''
