Seaside sculptures

I’m a big fan of St Jude’s Gallery in the UK – mainly for their printmakers but also for the extraordinary talents of Alex Malcolmson, a Scottish gent who makes the most amazing boxworks and other marine-inspired sculptures. My favourite is this black swan. He says his slatted birds “started with the idea of an upturned boat”, but also draw on the tradition of decoy making.

If you’re in the UK, you can view his work in person at the upcoming St Jude’s in the City exhibition with Angie Lewin at The Town House, Spitalfields in London from May 15-24.
