Biography / CV of Keith GibbonsKeith 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.
