About the Work
Smooth, black granite flecked with embedded, white sea shells is engineered into an elegant loop in this table top sized sculpture. Poised upon a flat metal base, the loop is slightly flattened and stretched thin on one side suggestive of a bridge. This work is number 19 in a series of 20. Jeremy Guy was born in 1966 in a small town in West Yorkshire, England. Natural inspiration has come from the work of British modern sculptors Henry Moore and Barbara Hepworth. He has lived in Canada since 2007. Educated in Fine Art and holding an honours degree in Product Design, Jeremy has been a full-time sculptor for approximately 20 years. His works can be found in public spaces and private collections in many countries across three continents. The natural environment and especially time spent on, or near, water have had a significant influence on Guy's work. "In my own abstract work I am acutely aware that nature champions great design. From the shaping of a beach pebble through years of tidal and elemental erosion to the myriad forms found in biology, I am often awestruck. My work conveys a sense of balance and peace as I strive to seek a seemingly impossible equilibrium between the simple elegance and dynamic complexity of the world in which we live."
