In this episode Gary Mansfield speaks to Richard Mackness (@richardmackness)


Richard Mackness is a contemporary artist, working primarily in sculpture. His work often deals with dualities such as Synthetic / Evolved, Earthly / Divine, Priceless / Worthless and is characterised by expressive form and precise handling of materials.

Exhibitions include group shows at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park (‘Clay Sculpture’), the Ikon gallery (Imagination’) and at galleries in London, New York and Germany.



Kensington + Chelsea Art Week (KCAW) is delighted to present its fifth annual Public Art Trail. West London will be brought to life with vibrant and immersive public art, free for all to enjoy for the duration of the summer.
