MATERIAL TRUTHS – Exploring the Substance of Sculpture 
The materiality of a sculpture affects and impacts on the viewer’s experience and engagement with its presence. The artist’s ideas, purpose, contextual backstory and expression is held in its form, its matter and the space it occupies. Materials and their different qualities will often determine the form and narrative of a work. 

“Truth to Materials” was of fundamental importance to Henry Moore who stated “Every material has its own individual qualities. It is only when the sculptor works direct, when there is an active relationship with his material, that the material can take its part in the shaping of an idea”. 

This is exhibition by Northern and Scottish members of The Royal Society of Sculptors seeks to freely explore individual members’ material truths.
