Ben Barrell’s joyous sculptural forms and shapes flow out of his approach to life and the things he sees and experiences around him.

He has experienced first-hand the drama of the Atlantic Ocean and the waves that crash against the beach, the experience of sailing on it and surfing through it, the joy of encountering the species that call it home.

Brought up a farmer’s son on a cliff top above St Gennys, Ben was drenched in an understanding of the ebbs and flows of nature, and the forces that shape and influence it. He is a Cornish sculptor who works surrounded by the extraordinary beauty of the place that has been his home since birth.
