POOLE, Laurence

Laurence was born in South London in 1963. He now lives in Hastings on the south coast of
England, with a studio in nearby St Leonards-on-Sea. He is an alumnus of Croydon College of Art, Chelsea College of Art & Design, the University of Brighton and The California Sculpture Academy. Laurence assembles multiples
of found objects (objets trouvés) to create sculptures that represent an archival celebration of vintage commercial and industrial design: model cars symbolise tokens of playtimes; a camera is a trove of captured moments; a golf club acts as a proxy for countless victorious jaunts to the nineteenth hole. The era of these objects and our idiosyncratic reaction to them often induces a palpable sense of nostalgia.
