Meditations on the Human Form
Payne's work has real sense of life running through it. The realistic nature in the shapes and small details of the figures he sculpts is such that they take on a rich and individual character. This character can be read clearly on the faces of his sculpted subjects. This is sculpture of the highest order and, like any sculpted art of a supreme quality, these pieces of art serve as a meditation on the human form. Carl Payne is able to present something through his work which is undeniably tender and human whilst also exciting in its formal experimentation.
Classically Accomplished and Experimental
Clearly informed by a deep and accomplished knowledge of the classical art of sculpture, Carl Payne's work nevertheless has an undeniably contemporary component to the look which it offers. It is this wonderful mix of tradition and modernity which gives his work such drive. Technical mastery is combined with a fresh and cutting vision to powerful effect. His skills and his aesthetic have won him collectors, as well as plaudits, from across the globe. His large sculpture of Sir Stanley Matthews at the Britannia Stadium in Stoke was even voted as the best sporting statue in Europe.
