Aly Brown

Characterised by her ability to turn hard, solid stone into light and delicate forms, Aly Brown’s semi-figurative sculptures seem to gracefully emerge from the blocks of stone she uses. The flowing, curvilinear lines of her carving reveal the fluidity of shape, encapsulating the sensual energy inherent within the female form. Each form seems to be captured in a singular moment, frozen within the stillness of the stone and yet unmistakably alive, pulsing with vitality. With such a sensitive and dynamic approach to sculpting, Aly not only reveals the plasticity of the stone, transforming our preconceived understanding of such an inflexible medium, but transforms the rock into beautiful pieces of art.

Aly began collecting stones as a child whenever she went to a beach or along a river bank – a pastime that has continued to this day. Her career as a sculptor began at Heatherley’s Art School as a mature student. It was only in her second year of her sculpting Diploma that her passion for carving really began. Aly now works in her studio in London.
