Steve Dilworth was born in Yorkshire, studied at Maidstone College of Art and, since 1983, has lived and worked on the remote Isle of Harris, Scotland. e landscape of eastern Harris is both rugged and beautiful in the extreme, with exposed rock three thousand million years old left by scouring glaciers from the last ice age. e energy and presence of such surroundings are powerfully conveyed in Dilworth’s work and he is renowned for using a vast range of natural materials, mostly found on the island. Indeed, Dilworth used ‘once-living’ objects in his work long before it was fashionable in contemporary art.Dilworth often encases natural objects he has found within his sculptures. e solid remains of animals and birds, beautiful in their own right, impart an energy and life to his sculpture. Even when completely enclosed, like the heart in a living body or the engine in a static vehicle, they empower the sculpture in both conceptual and symbolic ways. is catalogue was published by Pangolin London to coincide with their exhibition of Dilworth’s works in autumn 2017. It regroups many of his works and is introduced by Georgina Coburn.
