Gareth Leake
Gareth Leake is a talented and passionate artist who lives and works from his studio near Bath, England. He creates remarkably realistic life size torsos in wood and clay and casts in plaster and resin.

At the Bath Society of Arts exhibition in 2009 he was awarded the Bristol Guild Prize and is now showing commercially choosing A2 gallery in Wells, Somerset to represent him.

A self taught scultptor – by manufacturing his own moulds and casting in plaster or resin at his workshops near Bath he retains control of the whole sculpture process from inception to completed piece.

Gareth says “I have had a life-long interest in anatomy and bodywork therapies, and I’ve studied a variety of massage techniques and Shiatsu. In my sculpture, I draw from my practical ‘hands on’ experience of treating muscular and skeletal issues, and from my detailed knowledge of anatomy. I sculpt mainly from touch, using my fingers as eyes”.
