In his exhibition of new sculptures, The Ghost of the Huia and The Orchard, Paul Dibble extends his amalgamation of Cor-ten steel with cast bronze. In a glorious juxtaposition of function and aesthetic play the two materials demonstrate a fascinating use of contrast. By methods of cutting, measuring and bending the Cor-ten is engineered by the artist into geometric forms and, as in his earlier series, the precision of the highly fabricated steel is enlivened by the contrast of the rounded and sensual surfaces of the hand-modelled bronze.

A new publication
Paul Dibble: The Large Works will also be launched to coincide with the exhibition.
