Biography / CV of Keith Gibbons

Keith Gibbons`s Personal Statement
I started my young life going to the usual selection of schools in the outer suburbs of London, before trundling along the A40 to High Wycombe College of Art and Technology, as it was then, to do a pre-diploma course, and then onto the furniture course at the same college. I didn?t make much furniture at High Wycombe, but I did produce some sculpture for John Moores Exhibition at the Walker Gallery in Liverpool, (Hockney won that year), the Young Contemporaries at the Tate and at the Whitechapel Gallery and the Northern Young Contemporaries.
Deciding that I didn`t want to work yet, I applied to the Royal College of Art to continue furniture studies, where I also didn`t make much furniture. When I left the RCA in ?72 I was overwhelmed by my choices.
After what is euphemistically called a gap year, I rented an old piano shop near Wandsworth Bridge, and opened BRUMAS where I sold furniture, paintings, prints and jewellery. I produced various interior accessories with airbrushed designs, which I continued after closing the shop.
I went on to produce further interior accessories, clocks, lamps, ceramics, under the name PRODUCTS which was based at a workshop in Clerkenwell. These pieces increased in size and I made various large items of furniture.

"The problem of contemporary sculpture and the garden is one which has rankled in my mind for years. It is usually resolved through a process of inversion-that is turning it into sculpture in the garden as against garden sculpture. By that I mean the sculptor takes over the garden as an open exhibition gallery, of which the focus is their creation, to which the world of nature merely provides the frame.The Idea that sculpture is a contributory element to an overall'mise en scene',in which, sometimes its role may be incedental rather than central, has been lost.In this we have seen the betrayall of the great tradition of garden sculpture, one which was unashamed at being decorative or delightful."

Customer comment on 'Brasil - Chess (Corporate Commission of an entire edition)' by Plamen Dimitrov
Although it seemed a daunting project to commission a sculpture on the internet with a tight deadline, Plamen Dimitrov in Bulgaria made it as easy as possible for me in Brazil by producing a series of little clay sketches after each email and sending photos it seemed by return. He worked round the clock and was incredibly intuitive with his understanding of what I wanted. This was despite an 8 hour time difference and having poor English as our common language. He w...
