What's On at Cooks Hill Galleries?

March 1, 2019

This month, Cooks Hill Galleries presents Steve Glassborow – Anti-Gravity, Understanding Bronze. The exhibition opens on 15 March and will continue at CHG until  8 April 2019. Steve Glassborow is a sculptor who presents human figures in a unique way. They are, at the one time, classical and abstract. It is almost as if his figures have chosen their relationship with their environment after an initial struggle to retain their integrity.

"I attempt to bend the traditional attitudes of the figure, while still retaining my view of an aesthetic balance," he says.

CHG Director, Mark Widdup says Glassborow sculptures immediately command the viewers attention with striking imagery, forms and design. 

“His sculptures often relate to an art deco form which has morphed into themes influenced by fashion, robotic figures and animals in recent years,” he adds.

Born in Hammersmith in the UK, it was while studying Fine Arts at the Brighton College of Art that Glassborow realised he preferred the physicality and structure of sculpture to the discipline of painting. So began his journey with clay, developing the myriad of skills that are required to master sculpturing.

He travelled for four years exhibiting his work and releasing limited edition art deco and art nouveau figurines and lamps, both in the UK and in Australia. In 1983 he became a permanent resident of Australia.
