25th May – 2nd June 2024 Creative Kernow

David CP Harrison – Trew Green Sculpture


Abstract Cornish granite and metal sculptures that explores feelings and emotions found in Cornish heritage, landscape, and personal experiences.

Dynamic geological movement found within the rocks of West Cornwall, as well as the wild coastline, severe weather, and our mining heritage all influence my work.

Stone carving is a process of discovery working directly on ‘characterful’ boulders. Driven by the original shape of the boulder and with an idea in mind, perhaps a maquette, a journey is initiated. It is through a process of reciprocity, that the final work emerges, guided by a dialogue that develops with the stone. Often a large percentage of the original stone is removed, creatively revealing the stories and shapes held within.
Metal, on the other hand requires a more systematic approach of design and implementation. However, working entirely by hand and avoiding exacting standards, affords an opportunity for further creativity and interpretation during construction. This helps create unique, individual works of art. Larger, slenderer, and colourful forms are explored.

Many of my larger sculptures are on permanent display at “Trew Green Sculpture” (a Google Maps destination). Smaller sculptures can be seen in my private gallery/studio at Trelawney House, along with paintings by Richard Horner RSMA

In Trew you can also find the studios of:- Cornish Spoons; Anthea Bowen Ceramics, and Richard Horner RSMA Paintings.
