'Newts' by Dik Downey
Bronze and reclaimed wood by Dik Downey. Roughly 21cm x 12 x 12.
As a visual artist, Dik sculpts strange, comic and grotesque characters influenced by Outsider Art, African bronzes, Czech animation and traditional Punch and Judy. Found objects are used to mount his sculptures, often holding significant and poignant memories, such as a fence-post from the church where his late father played the organ.
