Ancient oak, holly & weathered timber
Consciously working only with fallen and forgotten timber, Wycliffe Stutchbury’s artistic ethos has an integrity that focuses on truth to materials, as well as sustainability. The origin of the timber is central to his process, whether working with the pure-white timbers of a holly tree or the semi-petrified timbers of a 5000-year-old bog oak.
Led by the timber itself, he works instinctively as he assembles his material into delicate patchworked landscapes of texture, colour and pattern. A meditative and reflective process, Stutchbury’s works consider the struggle between our desire to impose form on the natural world and its unwillingness to conform.
