Simon Allison born in Auckland in 1955 now lives and works in Oxfordshire. Inspired by his formative years spent exploring the wild and beautiful New Zealand cost, Allisons sculptural practice retains a strong connection to the natural world and our relationship with it. He often incorporates, adapts or replicates natural materials, sometimes pairing them with fabricated or synthetic objects. Alongside his own practice, Allison established and continues to run the Lockbund sculpture foundry@lockbundsculpturefoundry. The deep level of casting expertise he has developed in the years of running the foundry, feeds directly into his practice allowing him to work with bronze, and other cast metal, in a more naturalistic way than one might believe possible.
