Sculpture Exhibition

On Saturday evening I went to the opening of Martin Looker's exhibition of his sculpture. Martin works with found objects, often metal. He is inspired by their shape or pattern to make a work, sometimes adding a bit of paint for colour. He has a good eye for proportion and makes works which have a wide appeal. They are a nice size for display in a modern home, and keenly priced for those who like original works but don't have a substantial budget. For less than a couple of hundred euros you can acquire a work for your coffee table or mantelpiece. By the end of the opening drinks and nibbles he had sold half a dozen sculptures.

The exhibition is on at the Espace Mose in La Roche Posay (the old college building opposite the market square). It finishes on 24 February and is open every afternoon until then.

According to a contact of mine on Facebook, this type of metal is known by the metal detectorist fraternity as 'hedge fodder'. He commented that he was pleased to see it being put to such good use.
