Carol Sinclair – our touchstone!

Carol Sinclair has bepowys_carolen showing with us over the last ten years, we couldn’t give her up – she is a touchstone . She works with stone, wood and metal, some reclaimed – often beautifully weathered. Carol is a sculptor living and working in Hildersham in rural Cambridgeshire. The River Granta, which passes her house set in water meadows is a frequent source of inspiration.

Carol Sinclair graduated in Fine Art from the Central School of Art in 1987 and has since exhibited prolifically in private galleries and public spaces. The minimalist and contemplative qualities of her work have attracted commissions for both interior and garden environments. Her work is in many private collections.

One of Carol’s acknowledged inspirators is the late Jim Ede, the curator/art collector who created Kettle’s Yard in Cambridge. She shares with him a reverence for objects worn by time and the elements.

“There is often great beauty in naturally eroded materials – they encapsulate the elusive concept of time and infinity.” She likens her sculpture to the contemplative qualities of Japanese design. “It’s about stillness really. And observing things.”
