Sculptures by Julian Wild are being exhibited in Horatio’s Garden Salisbury until March 2016.
Julian Wild graduated with a BA in Fine Art Sculpture from Kingston University in 1995. He has held solo exhibitions at Modern Art Oxford, Burghley House, William Benington Gallery and Canary Wharf. Julian has been commissioned to make public artworks for a number of institutions including Fidelity Investments, Millfield School, Cass Sculpture Foundation, Crest Nicholson, Jerwood Sculpture Park, Schroders investments, Wyeth Europa, Radley College, Sculpture in the Parklands in Ireland and The Burghley House Preservation Trust.
In 2005 he was shortlisted for The Jerwood Sculpture Prize. From 2009-12 he was the recipient of the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea and Chelsea Arts Club Trust Studio Bursary. He is Vice President of The Royal British Society of Sculptors.
His work is often described as form of three-dimensional drawing. The lines and elements within the structures that he makes sometimes explore the boundaries of a pre-determined shape and sometimes work like free-flowing three-dimensional doodles. His sculptures reference functional processes and systems, using hard man-made materials and bright colours to echo forms found in nature.
The three sculptures exhibited are:
Himalayan Balsam 2014: Powder coated stainless steel
Incomplete System 2011: Aluminium
Doodleform 2009: stainless steel
