     Brad Gunn is a sculptor working in a range of contemporary materials and techniques.  Balancing a professional sculpture and fabrication business with his own personal practice he has worked for an array of private and commercial clients. His own practice is often figurative and explores the psychology through surreal characters. "I try to investigate character traits and personalities through character studies.  Humans are colourful and my work tries to capture this."
