ARTIST & SCULPTOR
Exhibiting at Cafe Connect
29th August to the 30th October 2013
Carn is an accomplished artist and sculptor based in
Mainly self-taught, in the last 30 years he has created
a substantial body of work ranging from life-sized sculptures
cast in bronze and stone to designs and sculptures for
film, television and major theme parks. His commissioned
works are in private collections around the world.
His sculptures of animals, from Lions and Gorillas to
Bull Mastiffs and Wolfhounds, capture the soul of the
animal for which Carn is known. Some of these have been
exhibited at international events such as the RHS Chelsea
Flower Show and Crufts.
More recently Carn has turned his attention to creating
work for public spaces. Many folk in Fraserburgh will
have seen ‘Community Spirit’, the 6m long
sculpture he created from steel, ceramic and acrylic
glass that is suspended from the ceiling of the town’s
new Community and Leisure Centre.
This exhibition of wildlife drawings in white pencil
on black background is a rare opportunity to see some
of Carn’s other work. The way he has depicted
the animals coming out of the darkness gives the drawing
an almost sculptural feel, as if you can reach in to
it and maybe feel its essence.
In June 2013
Café Connect and Robertson Road Resource Centre
were presented with the Eat Safe Award. The Eat
Safe standard is awarded to businesses who have
gone above and beyond the requirements of current food
legislation to a standard of excellence.
