PAUL CATON
PAUL CATON

York Colletion ref: YORAG_SHAW_350

Born in 1950, Paul Caton is a sculptor in wood, bronze and stone, an artist primarily drawn to natural forms in the landscape, and whose best pieces have a rigorous and expressive sense of the material. It is mainly vessel-based work which took its initial inspiration from sculptors such as Henry Moore and Barbara Hepworth, and the potters Lucie Rie and Hans Coper.

Caton, who works in Herefordshire, is self taught, his earlier work in wood having a directness, freedom and ritual quality reminiscent of some of Brancusiís sculptural pieces, and bringing out the strong natural patina of the timber, his hand and tools given looser rein. It is an approach that lets the raw expansiveness of the wood speak for itself.
