Charlie Hurcombe lived and worked at Sidney Nolan Trust as the Artist in Residence. Working in the grain barn throughout the last two weeks of September 2013. Hurcombe produced new sculpture utilsing coppiced oak and ash from Rodd Wood, together with reclaimed manufactured materials such as plywood and MDF, Hurcombe will continue to explore existing concerns relating to the use of paint in sculpture and methods of assemblage and construction. In a departure from his current practice the residency focussed on carving as a method of creating forms and in turn reflect the physical and functional aspects of a rural working farm.
An exhibition of the work will take place at Pitt Studio in Worceste and at the Sidney Nolan Trust at a date to be confirmed.
