Mary Bourne RSA works predominantly in carved natural stone, reflecting on man’s relationship with his environment and on themes of subjectivity, the passage of time and change. The physicality of the objects she makes is very important and they are often highly tactile.


Mary Bourne RSA: For me art is a medium for reflection and communication. Given the durability of my medium this means communication not only between contemporaries but between generations: stone warmed and shaped by my hands will perhaps again be warmed by the hands of someone in some unknowable time to come.
