British artist and sculptor Tim Harrisson visited AUB on Thursday 14 March to provide a lecture about his practice.

The talk was introduced by Professor Simon Olding, Director of the Crafts Study Centre, University for the Creative Arts and Honorary Fellow of AUB, with Tim speaking about the meaning of his works donated to AUB.

In January we were delighted to have ‘End Piece’ and ‘Duo’, by renowned artist Tim Harrrisson installed on campus. ‘End Piece’ can be found outside South House and ‘Duo’ inside the Library.

Sculptor Tim Harrisson has been working with stone for the last thirty years. He provided insight into his work with special reference to the two recent works: ‘End Piece’ (Ham Stone, 2015) and ‘Duo’ (St Bee’s Cumberland Sandstone and Carrara Marble, 2018), now installed on the AUB campus. Tim Harrisson offered the sculptures on long-term loan to AUB in 2019.

Tim Harrisson and Professor Simon Olding are long-term colleagues and friends having known each other since Simon worked as Museum Director at the Russell-Cotes Art Gallery and Museum in Bournemouth. Simon commissioned Tim to make the sculpture ‘Horizon’ for the museum’s garden which was completed in 1995 and has followed Tim’s exhibitions and developments ever since.
