Penwith Gallery: David Kemp & Tom Leaper
Tom Leaper and David Kemp first worked together thirty-five years ago, producing several large-scale site-specific public sculptures in urban and rural post-industrial landscapes, forests, abandoned railways and steelworks up north, and on demolished Dockland sites in London.
Since then, they have continued to develop their own work and distinctive styles and skills.
This is the first exhibition they have had together in thirty years. Whilst illustrating great diversity, it may also demonstrate the influence that fifty years living and working in the broken granite post-industrial landscape of the wild “Tinners Coast” has had on their sculptures.
