Simon Conolly

Simon Conolly creates original sculpture from his studio in Shropshire overlooking Wenlock Edge. His work is inspired by personal observation of the British countryside and by life in a rural community.

His work focuses on the dynamics of creatures in numbers. He seeks to capture the movement and energy within groups and between the individuals making up those groups. He creates unique compositions of flocks of birds, shoals of fish, and gatherings of people.

Simon has had work exhibited regularly at The Mall Galleries, London and at the Royal Birmingham Society of Artists in the Jewellery Quarter in Birmingham. His work has also been shown in The Summer Exhibition at The Royal Academy and in the National Open Art Exhibition at Somerset House.

Simon lived in Bath as a child but has spent most of his adult life in the Midlands. It was whilst living in Stoke-On-Trent that he was introduced to the unique properties of clay as an artistic medium. .
