Conor Hurford


Conor is an artist based at Harrlem Artspace in Wirksworth Derbyshire; moving in shortly after receiving a first class fine art degree from Nottingham Trent University. He has exhibited locally at the curated Wirksworth festival exhibition, Harrlem Artspace and Haddon Hall. And several times in Nottingham at: Backlit Gallery, Bohunk art space, UON and The Orange Tree. His work features in numerous private collections with a highlight being Lea Hall where his first large scale limestone sculpture asides. Presently, Conor is preparing for his first major group exhibition at Burghley House for their annual sculpture exhibition

Growing up in the shadow of Stanton Moor home to The Nine Ladies stone circle and many prehistoric stone carvings, and beside a Lead recycling plant, Derbyshire's prehistoric past and industrial heritage continues to shape Conor's artistic future as he pushes: pattern, material and form through direct carving, casting and digital manipulations. Using a variety of materials he aims to blend: past, present and future through his material exploration in interesting and innovative ways.

Presently carving stone, Conor sculpts geological heritage in order to create artworks with longevity and legacy for future generations to come
