London-based artist Gary Webb makes sculpture out of industrial materials and his work often denotes a fascination with fast-paced urban living. Creating works from synthetic materials such as resin, neon and rubber and reworking ubiquitous matter such as glass, plexiglass, wood, sand and metal, Webb often parodies modernism to wry and poetic results—referencing consumer culture and making use of the solid and the open and the soft and rigid to explore new sculptural possibilities.
Webb has had a number of international solo exhibitions including De Cordova Sculpture Park and Museum, Lincoln, Massachusetts, Other Criteria, London, Centre d’Arte Contemporain, Geneva, The Centre for Contemporary Art, Gateshead, UK, and Museo de Arte de Lima, Lima, Peru. Group shows include The Royal Academy, London, Whitechapel Gallery, London, Total Museum, Seoul, Korea, and Musee des Beaux-Arts, Nancy, France.
