British artist and sculptor Tim Harrisson will speak at AUB in March. His talk will be introduced by Professor Simon Olding, Director of the Crafts Study Centre, University for the Creative Arts.

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 will be talking about 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.

The talk will begin with an introduction by Professor Simon Olding, Director of the Crafts Study Centre at the University for the Creative Arts and Honorary Fellow of AUB.

The pair 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.
