Presenting twists on everyday objects and situations with his highly inventive use of materials and processes, Alex Chinneck’s work progresses on an ever-increasing scale, both in the gallery and in public space. His practice takes engineered routes to arrive at playful visual moments; stones, metals and woods are manipulated beyond their apparent capacity to transcend their material nature and often move with illusory effect. He is the head of The Sculpture House - a platform that enables artists to produce limited edition items of furniture. One of his most revered works-of-arts is undoubtedly 'From the Knees Of My Nose to the Belly Of My Toes'. Alex Chinneck studied at Chelsea College of Art, London and now lives and works in East London.
