neil ferber

Neil’s work is architectural, constantly exploring the relationships between mass and space. The main influences throughout his career have been European, looking towards Brancusi and Eduardo Chillida. His sculpture does not represent anything external to itself. The works are compositions arising from the use of traditional sculptural elements such as mass, plane, line, weight and space. He strives to make pieces that are fully three dimensional, that have no front, back or sides, where all views are equally interesting. For Neil, a sculpture needs to be more than a collection of views, but to have a feeling of unity in space, an inner logic. If this can be achieved, the question of viewing angles does not arise. Neil’s sculptures are in private collections in Italy, Sweden, England and the USA. Neil works in Pietrasanta, Italy.
