Artist of the Month: GARY COLCLOUGH

Simplicity at its best!

Colcloughs work in content reflects the detail of studying nature, but also the natural geommetry and shapes hidden within it. I love the cross-over between drawing and sculpture; challenging the traditional concepts of what a drawing can be and how it’s presented. My type of work!
