Paul Burton

of Worcester, UK

After a long and successful global career in the mining supply industry, following his retirement in 2017 Paul is now concentrating full-time on his first love of contemporary art, in particular sculpture. His return to art has been influenced by his extensive experiences living and working around the world in the mineral extraction industries, in so many diverse places ranging from the Gobi Desert to the frozen wastes of the Arctic Circle.

His unique steel, slate and glass creations are inspired by the earth’s resources and look to incorporate his unique ‘Earthlight’ sculpture creations back into the landscape. This range of work is Paul’s observation and statement on where we are in the conflicting debates on the resource management of our planet. The intent of these pieces is to question the Western environmentalist paradigm. These ‘Earthlight’ pieces make a statement. They are from the earth, made up of, slate, silica, steel, lead, and crystal, and display the earth’s bounty in a beautiful and powerful way.
