I'm an sculptor as well as a writer and in the gallery below you can see examples of my work.
Inspired by mindfulness, Colin Eveleigh makes multi-media assemblages and sculptures that reflect the issues, challenges and conundrums of everyday life. Wall hanging or free standing, his sculptures are intriguing, thought-provoking, accessible and usually of a practical domestic scale. Attached or associated with each piece, a short poetic verse will often form an integral part of the work.
“I like the hands-on directness of clay and paint, the sensory gateway this opens and the technical challenges of constructing sculptures with wood, metal and other materials. I also delight in reflecting on and carefully crafting words that help to bring to life the direct experiences of living. I am a collector of words, phrases and sayings and these will often prompt an enquiry into meanings and materials."
“My intention is to encourage people to think and share with one another their thoughts, feelings and experiences of everyday life, and I trust my artwork promotes a dialogue about this.”
Colin has a background in Psychology, and worked for many years as a psychotherapist in the National Health Service and also as a Leadership Development Consultant in the corporate world internationally.
In 2004 he gained a Diploma in Fine Art from the University of the Creative Arts at Farnham and has been a member of Petersfield Arts and Crafts Society for over 20 years, regularly exhibiting at the Summer and Autumn exhibitions. He joined ARTEL a collective of contemporary artists in 2022.
