Sculptures in the Gardens

Sculptures in the Gardens – Brendon Murless

Compton Acres welcome with much excitement, ‘Serenity’ and ‘Mother’. These stunning thought evoking pieces can be found as you approach the Japanese Garden. Mother is framed by the striking bamboo, which offers the perfect backdrop for this contemporary figurative sculptor. Serenity sits peacefully by the archway entrance to our popular Japanese gardens, surrounded with soft planting complimenting the subtle green toned finish.

In the Wooded Valley, you can also find Winds of Change V and Winds of Change V1 dancing together amongst the trees. As the leaves fall in Autumn these sculptures will really come into their own, making sense of their very creation.

Award winning sculptor Brendon Murless takes his inspiration from both the human form and the beauty in nature, exploring that special connection through different materials and themes. Brendon’s unique style captures the imagination of the viewer as he leaves the door wide open for the viewer to interpret his pieces for themselves.

Brendon has been named Best Figurative Sculpture by The Southwest Academy of Fine Arts and has exhibited his stunning work around the UK and abroad for over 15 years. As well as working to private and public commissions, in the UK his work has been exhibited extensively, including galleries and sculpture parks such as Cotswold Sculpture Park, The Sculpture Park (Surrey), RHS Rosemoor, Harold Hillier Gardens and many more.

Brendon comments: “It a pleasure to be exhibiting at Compton Acres where the beautiful gardens will be the perfect setting for my outdoor sculptures”
