About Roger Hardy

About the artwork

This sculpture is made from carved estuary driftwood and plaster. Roger Hardy works on figurative constructions and sculpture using found elements from his local boatyards. The estuary has been a productive hunting ground. Mud larking at low tide for wood, worn by time and tide. The found elements are relics of history and time gone by. Found river wood has a previous life and a story to tell. I think this is why I am drawn to it. Although the wood I find has mostly been worked by man, nature has reclaimed it and shaped it over time. So I am saving it and giving it back life and soul in the form of the human figure. Revealing the layers of history and life it once had. I like to work with the timeless quality of the sculptures. They could have been carved in the Middle Ages by long lost ancestors or pilgrims. I like them to take on a totemistic resonance. They seem to have a soul/life becoming an icon of humanity. This aspect fascinates me. As individuals, we have a great desire to project our own humanity and emotions onto the most primitive human form.
