With a background in both Biochemistry and traditional sculpture, Briony Marshall fuses an intellectual/conceptual approach with an intuitive, materials inspired process to develop sculptures that investigate man's place in the natural world.

To date, Briony Marshall’s practice has drawn inspiration from her scientific background and a training in traditional figure sculpture to produce contemporary sculptures and installations that attempt to make sense of the big questions of life and the little questions of daily existence.

Scientific themes and molecular structures combine with representations of personal relationships to draw out moments of insight into the world around us. She often plays with macro-micro parallels to investigate complex issues such as society’s response to the climate change problem.

“I worked with her quite closely and felt inspired by her talent and was thrilled by the breakthrough she achieved in her work”. Helaine Blumenfeld VPRBS on conclusion of Briony’s three month Brian Mercer Bronze Casting Residency in 2010
