Ray Exworth: Sculptor
A film by Chris Chapman
Commissioned by The Ray Exworth Wrexham Trust to coincide with the exhibition Ray Exworth: A Shutter Came Down (17 Sep – 30 Oct 2011)
Back cover summary:
For over 45 years Ray Exworth has worked in a remote part of Cornwall producing monumental sculpture, much of which draws on memory and experience of his childhood in East Anglia during the Second World War.
Working briefly as an engineering apprentice, and later as a meteorologist in the Civil Service, Ray entered Ipswich School of Art to study painting in 1951.
The effect of a trip to the Musee Rodin in Paris, an experience that Ray described as ‘almost like a religious conversation’, prompted his decision to become a sculptor.
