SUMMERFIELD, Chris

c.1956 - ?

Christopher W. Summerfield studied for his master's degree at The Royal College of Art in 1984 where he assisted with the sculptor Henry Moore’s work. A senior lecturer in fine art, becoming acting subject leader in sculpture at Norwich University of the Arts 1991-2009, sculptor Chris Summerfield is now focusing on his own creative work working full time making work for exhibitions and commissions. His work is a response to both the natural and the manufactured world, between abstraction and representation, often producing 'toy-like' hybrids which echo the dreamlike world of childhood. He is exploring digital photography as an outcome for his artwork but continues to produce sculptures. He has exhibited at Pilchard Palace Gallery St Ives, Cornwall. He works from The Cut, Halesworth, Suffolk.
