Castle Galleries- A Great Stumble Upon.

By Posted on 0 964

I was three hours early for an appointment in Leamington Spa, Warwickshire so I decided to scan the area and get to know it better seeing as it was my first time being there. I was absentmindedly walking down the streets when I noticed this sign that read Castle Galleries‘ and decided I had three hours to spare so why not have a quick look through.

Stickwork

I was reading an article about unusual art today when I came across this impressive sculpture by Patrick Dougherty and decided to look him up.  Patrick Dougherty is a stickwork and branch-bender extraordinaire. what I would call a ‘branch master’.

Combining his carpentry skills with his love of nature, Patrick Dougherty began to learn about primitive techniques of building and to experiment with tree saplings as construction material. Beginning about 1980 with small works, fashioned in his backyard, he quickly moved from single pieces on conventional pedestals to monumental site-specific installations that require sticks by the truckload. To date he has built over two hundred such massive sculptures all over the world. Here are some of his sculptures.
