Born (in 1967) and based in Suffolk, sculptor Laurence Edwards trained at Canterbury College of Art from 1985-88 and then at the Royal College of Art (1988-90). Edward’s primary interests are in the male human form, anatomy and metamorphosis, especially regarding the change undergone by this shape during improvisational moulding and casting techniques. To make his sculptures Edwards first works in clay, these are then transferred into a wax version by way of a latex shell and it is at this point, when most sculptors depart, that he begins again.

Edwards has been represented by Messums since 2010, and in 2018 enjoyed a sell out solo show tour in Sydney and Melbourne, Australia organised by Messums Wiltshire.
