April Key

Contemporary Sculptor

What I do:

I’m an artist who specialises in contemporary sculpture, with extra focus on colour and light presentation. My practice aims to create a dynamic and visually arresting dance between tradition and innovation, where materials boundaries of sculpture are continually challenged and expanded. Over time, I’ve nurtured a symbiotic relationship with traditional maker materials including ceramics and glass, bringing them into a transformative dialogue with modern fabrication methods.

What steps I took to get where I am now:

After graduating from Edinburgh College of Art, I moved to Istanbul where I opened an art studio and stayed for over a decade. Being in that metropolis environment gave me exposure to a high variety of creative individuals which wildly opened up my thinking and typical development process. Being back in Yorkshire, my home county, I’m keen to apply this experience to more local and national endeavours.

What creative opportunities I'm looking for:

Commissions for public spaces, gallery exhibitions, residency opportunities.
