Conor Hurford

Festival: 2018

Growing up in the shadow of Stanton Moor home to The Nine Ladies stone circle and many prehistoric stone carvings, and beside a Lead recycling plant, Derbyshire’s prehistoric past and industrial heritage continues to shape Conor’s artistic practice as he pushes: pattern, material and form through direct carving, casting and digital manipulations. Using a variety of materials he aims to blend: past, present and future through his material exploration in interesting and innovative ways.
