Summary

Closer Bernard McGuigan

Bernard uses a sharp chisel and heavy mallet to transform stone into human curves. He has worked with stone since the age of 16 and selects his materials based on colour and texture to create graceful distinctive pieces. His work has a sense of tranquillity that shows human tenderness in a harsh and competitive world.
