The Art of
James Connolly

James is a sculptor who works extensively in stone, terracotta, plaster, cast resins and metals.

Stone sculptures in the warm colours and wonderful textures of Cotswold stone are one of the hallmarks of his work.

He is also a painter in oils, with many of his canvasses concerned with the same themes as his statues, betraying a sculptor's eye for line and form.

(The labour of the stone sculptor is to take each fresh block of unplumbed, secretive stone, and working only with simple tools - mallet and chisels - to seek the shape hidden within the uncarved block, and with tender blows, release it to the light...)
