Classical Interiors Carved Into Marble And Stone By Matthew Simmonds

by Julija K.

Matthew Simmonds, a highly acclaimed English sculptor, carves beautiful sculptures of the interiors of monumental historical buildings from marble and stone. His sculptures strike a stark contrast between his precise architectural forms and the raw and natural stone or marble pieces that they were carved out of.

“To create a sculpture that catches the light and structure of a building and lets the eye wander, to feel that here my eye could live, here a part of me could stay, is a great achievement,“ – Matthew describes his work in his artist statement.

If you find yourself in Oxford any time soon, you can visit a collaborative exhibition with Matthew’s pieces called “On Form 14”, at Asthall Manor, Burford, Oxfordshire, until 6th July 2014.
