Martin & Dowling

Malcolm Martin and Gaynor Dowling make sculpture in wood, from half-ton monumental forms for a secret garden, to vessels sewn together from sections of veneer weighing a few grammes. They work together on every stage of the pieces, and have been collaborating full time since 1997. What all their pieces share is the central role of the hand and of hand tools, primarily through carving.

They work on different bodies of work concurrently, so the are continuing the series of still life groupings both in monochrome and colour at the same time as making significant single pieces.
