Date of birth
11th October 1944 

Andrew Stonyer studied at Northampton School of Art, Loughborough College of Art, The Architectural Association School of Architecture, and Leicester Polytechnic in collaboration with the Slade School of Fine Art. This last period of study was marked by his being awarded the first PhD for studio based research in Fine Art in the UK (1978). This PhD concerned the use of solar energy in the development of kinetic sculpture.

Andrew has taught, exhibited and completed commissions in Turkey, Holland, Canada and USA. His work can be found in public and private collections in all these countries.

Andrew makes all of his sculpture, a process that commences with an exploratory sequence of maquettes. He describes his sculpture as a search for patterns of actual and implied kinetic energy that are hidden within the seemingly regular, and are always transcribed through the geometry of the circle and the square. The patterns of kinetic imagery in these sculptures serve as the basis for explorations into sculpture where implied movement is the central theme. An example of this is ‘Rotating Circle’, a large corten steel sculpture exhibited in 2009 at the Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge.

Andrew Stonyer is represented by Brownsword Hepworth.
