Sid Burnard's objects are unmodified. There is no alteration, no whittling or carving, no painting. The forms are as the waves left them, the colours too, distressed, eroded, graded by sea and sand. They fill the rooms they inhabit with light. The art is in Sid’s recognition of their sculptural potential, and in his combination of one with another.
‘His magic eye for a bit of driftwood, his extraordinary gift for catching the essence of marine life and scenes with found materials, serious, hilarious, and always true’
Sam Llewellyn, author.
