David Thompson (1939-2019)

'For the first half of my career I made abstract sculpture in stone. I developed a method of constructing sculpture out of several elements. These often interlocked, almost like three-dimensional jigsaw puzzles. I experienced a good deal of critical and commercial success throughout this period, sooner or later, selling nearly everything I made. However in the early eighties I became increasingly frustrated with my work and longed to find a different approach.

As a student of sculpture in the late fifties I had been taught, along with my contemporaries, almost exclusively through modelling and drawing the nude figure.
