Fernando Casasempere, ‘Geology 4’, 2015, Cob

Fernando Casasempere (b. 1958 lives and works in London) is a sculptor working with ceramics, the traditional material of pottery, to explore ideas of landscape and the environment. Conceptually his use of earth/clay and his concern with nature and ecological issues connects him to artists associated with the Land or Earth Art movement, such as Robert Smithson and Richard Long, however works out of a different cultural tradition, being profoundly inspired by the Pre-Columbian art and architecture of Latin America.
