Bob Waters

Bob Waters

I studied Architecture briefly at Bristol University before changing courses to 3D design at Brighton College of Art, with a B.A. in 1978.

The figurative work began in the mid-1990’s, following several cycling trips to the Andean regions of S. America, and was initially based on sculptures of heads and faces seen at different places and times.

Bob Waters work with industrial scrap, experimenting and developing techniques around the source material. Figures are constructed by cutting and cold bending pieces of stainless steel sheet, tacking them together with a spot welder to build the structure, and then TIG welding along the seams to give both strength and the visual effects of the heat colours. Working to the limits of what I can achieve through cold bending, gives a limited but very direct characterization, expressed through body language and gesture, and with increasing facility and fluidity, surprising subtlety is attainable. Locally, my work will be best known for the solo displays shown in the grounds of Arlington Court, a National Trust property, from 2000 until 2006.
