Rufus Newell and Zoe Spowage are two Leeds based artists, working collaboratively on sculpture projects. They have been working together for four years, recently taking part in a month long sculpture residency at Cyprus School of Art. Their process of making is shaped by their separate styles. Recycled and reused by one another, sculptures become bold, colourful assemblages where the craft of the artist’s hand is present.
Working with Year 9 students at Crofton Academy, Rufus and Zoe have been exploring what it means to work with materials collaboratively.
Yorkshire Sculpture International 2019 had an extensive engagement programme, working with schools, universities, communities and artists.
We explored sculpture with people of all ages, connecting them with the materials and processes used in making sculpture today and showing how sculpture can be found all around us.
