Guy Haddon Grant
Guy Haddon Grant's monochromatic sculptures and drawings lie at the boundary between abstraction and figuration.
Guy's sculptures ascend with casual spontaneity and disruptive force; his drawings, ephemeral in nature, grapple with the tension between density and lightness. Caught in between the traditional and contemporary worlds, Haddon Grant loosened his stroke, abstracting natural forms, prefencing dynamism and emotion over surgical accuracy. At this intersection, classicism bleeds into contemporaneity.
Guy Haddon-Grant (b.1986, London) works across the mediums of sculpture and drawing. He started his studies at Camberwell College of Art, London, before moving to Florence, Italy, for two years to study the renaissance masters and their techniques.
In 2016, Haddon-Grant was elected a member of the Royal British Society of Sculptors. He has exhibited widely in solo and group exhibitions, notably in The British Figure at Flowers Gallery, London (2015), and Bloomberg New Contemporaries 2010 at A Foundation, Liverpool (2010) and ICA, London (2010-2011).
