Following my passion for art I completed a foundation degree at Salisbury College. Sport then took me in an alternative direction but ultimately made its contribution to my sculpting having developed an interest in mechanics and movement. A local foundry took me on allowing the development of skill in patination and now with over 20 years of practical skill and knowledge I juggle the responsibilities and madness of a management role within Talos Art Foundry, with creating and producing my own work and nurturing my six wonderful children.
About My Work:
Nature is the primary concern of Matt Duke’s art work. Each of his pieces demonstrate a relationship between form and shape. There is an aesthetic beauty in the simplicity of the sculpture, which depends heavily on line and colour and evokes a moment in time captured perfectly in the fascinating medium of bronze.
