Born in the UK in 1968, Kevin Osmond studied and worked in London for over twenty years. He currently lives and works in Auckland, New Zealand.
Meticulous and experimental, Osmond transforms the mundane into the mesmeric, providing an escape from the realities of everyday life into an idyllic universe. Creating visionary ‘scapes’ and explosive structures, in an attempt to depict the energy in the world around us, he builds up complexity and interrelation from the repetition and adaptation of simple forms.
Influenced by landscape and space, Osmond’s work explores a gamut of different phenomena such as cloud formations, water droplets, topographical configurations, celestial explosions and galaxies. He has a strong interest in the representation of space, and this interest has not only been represented in sculpture, but in two-dimensional works on paper – investigations of space through meditative drawing.
Osmond is the recipient of a number of high profile awards, among them the second largest sculpture prize in the UK, the Mark Tanner Sculpture Award; the Credit Suisse First Boston Sculpture Prize; and the Penguin Books Sculpture Prize. He has also been commissioned to create work, including sculptural architectural projects, for clients including The Royal London Hospital and The Economist, and is featured in a number of major US and European collections.
