David Mayer`s sculpture has its roots in his childhood, which he spent in rural north Staffordshire close to the moorlands of the Peak District National Park. Walking, climbing and simply being in one of the UK`s most evocative landscapes left a lasting impression. Later, whilst working in this environment, his appreciation deepened with the opportunity to study wildlife and experience nature`s changing seasons and infinite moods. He draws on these experiences and his innate respect for and love of wild animals and the world`s wildernesses. He...

"The problem of contemporary sculpture and the garden is one which has rankled in my mind for years. It is usually resolved through a process of inversion-that is turning it into sculpture in the garden as against garden sculpture. By that I mean the sculptor takes over the garden as an open exhibition gallery, of which the focus is their creation, to which the world of nature merely provides the frame.The Idea that sculpture is a contributory element to an overall'mise en scene',in which, sometimes its role may be incedental rather than central, has been lost.In this we have seen the betrayall of the great tradition of garden sculpture, one which was unashamed at being decorative or delightful."
