Alyosha Moeran

This year at on form, Alyosha Moeran focuses on the sensory, exploring the way in which sound and stone intertwine, creating lithophones. By striking the stone, Alyosha illuminates the natural tone and harmony of the individual rocks he uses. Carefully choosing where to carve, Alyosha makes use of the negative space within these melodious sculptures, capturing their inherent reverberations. By using the technique of piercing, Alyosha helps to embody the otherwise bulky and immense material with a fantastic sense of life, rhythm and energy, creating beautiful, bulbous forms or fern-like shapes.

Alyosha Moeran was brought up in Japan and moved to the UK at 13. He read History at Cambridge before discovering stone carving, and has worked variously as a dry stone waller, restoration carver, letter-carver and sculptor. He trained in stonemasonry at the Building craft college and later in architectural stone carving at the City and Guilds London School of Art in 1996. Alyosha has since undertaken Public Art Commissions across the UK. He now works at his studio in East Sussex.
