 Tobias Ford  

Primarily concerned with movement and form, Tobias is interested in capturing intent, anatomical lines, and the more subtle communicative properties of physical bodies – be that human, avian or animal. There is a mesmerising aestheticism about line, smooth or jagged, that inspires. The intrigue felt whilst observing gravity pull a gait is something Tobias intends to share with like-minded viewers.


Using an intuitive new way of sculpting metal, small fragments of steel are welded together into a mass to create form. Quickly adding and removing segments eventually gives way to the mind’s vision of figure. Modelling the poses whilst sculpting enables one to experience how they feel, find the weight and the strain, and instinctively transfer this physical feel of the position into the sculpture itself.
