Imbued with an appearance of scientific rationality, Conrad Shawcross’ sculptures explore subjects that lie on the borders of geometry and philosophy, physics and metaphysics.
Inspired by different technologies, the artist's structures may retain in appearance the authority of machines – yet, they remain enigmatic, filled with paradox and wonder. Some have an absurdist melancholy feel, while others tend to the sublime, substituting the purely functional for phenomenological experience. Ultimately, Shawcross’ art questions what we take for granted and encourages us to see beyond the physical.
His work has been exhibited nationally and internationally as part of group exhibitions and has had solo exhibitions at international institutions including: Yorkshire Sculpture International, Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art, the New Art Centre, Roche Court, ARTMIA Foundation, MUDAM, Science Museum, London, Turner Contemporary, and Oxford Science Park.
Shawcross has also received numerous awards and undertaken prestigious residencies and cross-arts commissions.
