Carol Sinclair 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.
“I am intrigued by the natural process of reduction and regeneration; by the effects of natural forces such as water on wood, stone and metals, by the way the materials are eroded and broken down to basic elements. Even hostile man-made materials such as plastics are gradually coaxed and nudged by the elements into becoming soft, rounded and delicately coloured in the regeneration process."
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, attracting commissions for both interior and garden environments.
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.
