Lee Grandjean, Drift 2016, painted wood, h. 15, l. 32, d. 13
This cheerful work is one of a series of small table-top sculptures made for ‘Out of the Wood’ at GroundWork from 5 November -17 December 2016. It is made from pieces of apple tree roots found in the artist’s Norfolk garden. Its form and subject was suggested by the natural shape of the wood. As with many of Lee’s works, this is suggestively half-figurative, half-abstract, apparently throwing open its arms in an exuberant gesture, but equally it is a little essay in balance. Its bright colour is reminiscent of cartoon images.
Lee Grandjean is formerly Deputy Head of Sculpture at the Royal College of Art, having previously worked at Wimbledon. He trained at NE London and Winchester School of Art. His work has been shown extensively in the UK in 16 solo and 70 group shows. He is one of GroundWork’s featured artists.
