CURRICULUM VITAE

Steve Kelly

Dip. A.D. Honours, Sculpture

St Martin's School of Art, London 1971 - 74

Art Teachers Certificate

Goldsmiths College, London 1975 - 76

.

Steve studied sculpture at St Martins School of Art, graduating in 1974 and completing an Art Teachers Certificate at Goldsmiths College in 1976. He taught at Art Schools throughout East Anglia until he retired from teaching in 2011.

Steve lived on the North Norfolk coast for 20 years and his sculpture is inspired by the sea and its power to transform and disguise anything in its wake. By using brand new materials, wood, steel and concrete and disguising their origins he invites the viewer to invent a history or function. In each sculpture there are tangible elements of a previous existence.

Steve has exhibited in group and solo shows throughout East Anglia and in London since 1976. He was a member of the Norwich Twenty Group and Norfolk Contemporary Arts. His work can be found in private collections in the UK and Europe.

Steve returned to his native North Yorkshire in 2013 where he has his new home and studio. Outhouse Gallery, originally created as a showing space for Steve's work in Norfolk, now only exists on this website as a host gallery.
