Tim Stead: Object Maker & Seed Sower
8th Nov 2014 - 3rd Jan 2015
A Retrospective of Sculpture in Wood: 1973-2000 Supported by the National Lottery through Creative Scotland Curated by Laura Hamilton, former Director of the Collins Gallery, University of Strathclyde, in collaboration with Maggy Stead Lenert, widow of Tim Stead and retired Director of the Tim Stead Workshop. This is the final exhibition to tour prior to The Steading, the artistís unique family home, being passed to the Princeís Regeneration Trust in partnership with the Scottish Borders Council.
"With all my work I seem to be continually going around the relationship of man and nature. I am an incorrigible optimist and like to celebrate the fact that man can make an input which reveals nature in an altered beauty. Balance is everything".
In 1999, one year before his premature death, Tim Stead conceived a touring exhibition which focusing on the seemingly disparate worlds of furniture and sculpture, was intended to encapsulate the very essences of his practice: sculptural, pedagogical, environmental, architectural, fundamental and fun.
Sadly, the exhibition was never realised and now this show, which takes its title from Timís description of himself, seeks to redress the balance.
