Hamish Pearch explores the materials, objects and spaces that make up our worlds. Through sculpture, installation, drawing and sound, his artistic practice gives form to human experiences and systems that are mundane and magical in equal measure. Pearch’s sculptures mix, merge and remake forms to create objects of instability. Found objects, natural forms and commonplace materials are used alongside cast and modelled sculptures made from jesmonite and resin.
