Hamish Herd Sculptures

Even in the surreal touches, such as the elongations of the torso, there is a real heart and emotion to Hamish Herd's work. The sculptures transcend the cold gaze of the masterful technician and become something more tuneful, more captivating, and more alive.

About Hamish Herd

Hamish was born in South Africa but now resides in the UK, where he has a studio that he shares with his wife, who is also an artist. At university, he studied Art History for his Bachelor of Arts, before going into teaching art at secondary school level. After his time teaching, however, Hamish decided to go into art as a career full time, which he has now been doing for over 25 years. Over this time, he has focused not only on sculptures but also painting, sketching and more. This exploration of multiple forms speaks not only to his versatility but also to his driving passion for visual arts in general.

Highly accomplished artist

Now living in the beautiful environment of North Yorkshire with his wife and their children, Hamish has all the drive that he did when he embarked on his artistic career in his mid-twenties. His work is always impressive, with each small detail of texture and shape speaking to a level of dedication to his craft which gives all his artwork a classical splendour and aura. We are very happy to have in our collection a number of examples from his recent work with Jesmonite stone, pieces of sculpted art which have of late been earning him much adoration.

Technically masterful sculptures

His sculptures not only have a classical precision, but also a magnificent sense of movement. There is a power in these sculptures which proceeds from the artist's understanding of how to depict the great, muscular, poetry of bodies in flight. Hamish does not, however, limit himself to the human form, nor even to the realist mode. Much of his sculpted artwork captures the beauty of animals such as horses, whilst many of his sculptures portraying human figures bring with them a surreal manipulation of form.
