Dido Crosby is a London based sculptor, exhibiting nationally and internationally and working to commission in bronze and cast iron. Studied Zoology at Oxford, Sculpture at St Martins and welding at Poplar.
I work mostly life-size and mainly in plaster, sometimes in wax or clay, and cast in bronze. I enjoy the processes of transformation from one substance to the next; from subject to drawing, from image to three dimensions, from inert powder to solid object, from plaster to wax to bronze. Building up and taking back, adding and subtracting. The work is about the process and the endless choice, the struggle to make something work from all angles. The satisfaction is in making a whole cohesive animal that embodies some feeling or thought, from nothing, from dust.
Now exhibiting at Jagged Art, Marylebone, London, The Campden Gallery in Chipping Campden, Gloucestershire and The Marle Gallery in Axminster, Dorset.
