Ivor Abrahams: Sculptures

UK based sculptor and artist Ivor Abrahams makes unique and imagery gardens, cityscapes and seascapes, human figures and oversized bird sculptures. For building the owl sculptures he made use of photographic images that are cut, altered, painted over and turned into three-dimensional form.

Why owls? The artist shares: "The owl is so various in its forms and chameleon-like, it seemed rather a good theme to alight on, as I'd started to move into the animal world. These sculptures are fun to do, they're enjoyable. I don't have to soul-search or worry about content. I'm out there doing it. It's an externalization - it gives me a freedom".
