The work of Eddie Curtis explores the interaction of nature with elements of abandoned, aged and worn artefacts often left by man’s industrial pursuits . Typically he uses the ‘angle iron’ as a simple shorthand reference of all that is man made and applies ceramic encrustations and textures to indicate the accretions and patinations that develop over extended periods of time. Coastal groynes for instance, with the passage of time, become isolated, quite anthropomorphic and wonderfully sculptural in form. Abandoned concretions can become objet d’art with the constant erosion and washing of the sea. It is these forms that inspire him.
