Tim Sandys’ latest sculpture is a direct progression from his award-winning debut at the Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design and the Royal Scottish Academy’s New Contemporaries exhibition. His work expands on themes of overwhelming presence using elemental materials and universal themes of structure, process, corrosion and destruction. Reminiscent of scientific imagery or industrial by-products, Tim’s recent work echoes mathematical and physical processes in which materials such as water, steel, petroleum products and wood are allowed to dictate the finish of the work. Imposing and sometimes bleak, Tim’s work promotes rigour over sentimentality.
