Emma Elliott MRSS is a British sculptor whose central concerns are the incongruous and hypocritical aspects of humanity, and the impermanence and fragility of the natural world. For Elliott, art should seek out a reaction; a feeling or discussion. It should wrestle with society and its elements of rigidity. With experimentation and rafts- manship integral to her practice, Elliott uses material, symbolism and form to provoke, question and connect the dots between the refined and the primitive, and the physical and the spiritual. Elliott works in marble, salvaged from stone yards both in the UK and Italy, and repurposes off-cuts from larger industrial projects into works of art. Recent exhibitions include on form - Asthall Manor, The Summer Exhibition - Royal Society of Sculptors, The Sunny Art Prize Exhibition, Art For Youth and The London Group Open. Her works are held in a number of prestigious private collections, including 10 Downing Street, and Alex Soros Foundation.
Rosie Pearson is the custodian of Asthall Manor, Burford. With sculptor Anthony Turner, she founded on form and is Creative Director of the bi-annual exhibition.
