Guy Masterman, is an artist, author, academic and an art gallery owner. With a history of working in sport his focus is on form, movement and balance. He uses oak and ply together with steel and cement/concrete to play with large and small forms that depict movement while they juxtaposition in seemingly difficult balance. More abstract than reality, his sculpture is intended to capture a small moment of movement and leave the rest to the imagination.
