MAX TANNAHILL WOOD SCULPTURE from Bircham Gallery

As part of the Holt Festival (23rd-31st July), we are delighted to be showing a fabulous new body of work from Max Tannahill. Irish born, Max is a wood sculptor who lives and works in coastal Essex. Having lived in Australia for 15 years, Max returned to England in 1989, and it is here that he started carving his unique fish from the plentiful supply of driftwood gleaned from the shoreline and estuaries nearby. The pieces vary enormously in size from small individual flat fish to 4 meter long installations of shoals of fish swimming alongside boat remnants which are wall mounted or sometimes hung from chains. His world is essentially simple; imagined and governed to a large extent by the constraints of the materials he uses. The pieces in this exhibition will consist of wall hangings and free standing floor pieces of animals and fish.
