Llyr Erddyn Davies

Graduated in 2014 with a BA (Hons) degree in Fine Art from Falmouth University, Llŷr Erddyn Davies continued as a multi-disciplined artist outside of Caernarfon, North Wales.

 

Through my work I research and experiment with the relationships between people and their environment, be it with other people, land or objects in society. I enjoy working and learning heavy industry processes.

This body of work is part of a project called 'Unit of Measure' that includes a permanent Public Sculpture installed outside of Galeri Caernarfon. 

 

'Each figure started by modelling with wax. Small characters that reflect everyday situations. Once transformed to bronze a status is put on the figures. Bronze is a monumental material, and the process enables the maker to turn anything eternal; it serves as a history of time. It's a material sourced from the earth, made from industry to stand outside and react to the environment. We can't truly own a bronze only borrow for a time. These figures stand as anthropological studies of the everyday.'

Working in Bronze, Llŷr Erddyn Davies is the latest 3-D artist to join Ffin y Parc and will have his debut exhibition in 2019.
