iAuctionShop signs local industrial sculptor Chris Walton
SANDBACH, CHESHIRE, UK / Feb 18 2007. iAuctionShop has agreed to market local Cheshire industrial metal artist Chris Waltonís range of wall hanging sculptures.
iAuctionShop trading as R & S Collectables is delighted to announce a commercial arrangement between them and local sculptor Chris Walton.
Chris produces three main types of steel sculptures, Flat or 2D, 3D and Woven, all available in a range of sizes. His artistís statement reads:
ďMy current artistic practices' major influence is the decline of manufacturing and the textile industry in the UK.
Having served a boilermaking apprenticeship in the 1970s, and over the past 30 years watched the decline of the aforementioned industries in this, the home of the Industrial Revolution, I intend to take waste material and recycle it.
Using the symmetry and logic of an engineering background, I have taken the waste and turned it into a frameless wall hanging art form, with the use of shape and open spaces.
This has been achieved by incorporating the thinking of Carl Andre's 'Equivalent 8' by taking a building material out of its context and environment and mixing it with the straight lines of Piet Mondrian, with an overlay of shapes to give it a three dimensional effect.
This, I feel, keeps alive the beauty of metal in its base and simplistic state"
