Fogell’s original focus was on classical and modern stone, and he carried out restoration work for private and public collections including the British Museum, the Victoria and Albert Museum, English Heritage and the National Trust.

 

Having trained at Warwick University, Fogell took up a teaching post at Leicester University. Combining art education and his own studio practice has formed a rewarding journey for Fogell, who acknowledges a reciprocal relationship between teaching and his own creativity.

 

The crux of Fogell’s work is its simplicity. His work explores the interaction of sculptural geometry, symmetry and proportion in an experimentation with positive and negative space. In each work, organic forms converge in an interplay of rhythmic harmony. Working up from small maquettes, Fogell’s works utilise a combination of bronze, stone, steel and mixed media.

 

Working with The Nine British Art since 2016, Fogell is now represented solely by the gallery.
