Fisherman - Box Frame
This abstract piece of contemporary environmental art is simply entitled ‘Fisherman’ and is set within an open fronted natural driftwood box frame by the artist Richard Ward.
The assemblage of painted driftwood, rope and thread contribute to the semi-figurative image of a fisherman in this colourful piece of work.

Richards’s fascination with the sea and of driftwood in particular has led him from cabinet maker to artist, where he creates an interesting range of elegant designer furniture, sculptures and driftwood art.
Richard carefully selects the driftwood for its colour, intriguing texture and organic shape and is endlessly fascinated by the way each piece has been modified and weathered by the sea and nature’s elements.
Based on the south coast near Bournemouth in Dorset he has been making simple decorative works of art based on the sea and coastline for many years and successfully captures the feel of the coast with an uncomplicated naivety.
The frame has been signed by the artist.
