About Dr. Nicholas Gold

After two careers, in the Coldstream Guards and as a G.P., he has finally found his passion for using local materials and creating works for that landscape. His work is commission only, and his whims and follies can be found in Arizona, Yorkshire and Lincolnshire. He is influenced by Military Fortification and dry stonewalling of his native Yorkshire when he is not writing, exploring or inventing.

Artist Statement of Dr. Nicholas Gold

I have been building dry stone walls for about 45 years. One of the attractions was that I could turn something worse than useless, a stone in a field, into something useful and even handsome. Recycling was not in many people`s vocabulary until recently but that was, in effect, what I was doing. I moved to Guernsey in 2000 and have built some walls here despite the awkwardness of the local stone. At the invitation of Peter de Sausmarez, I built a stone cone 16ft high in his sculpture park and was then allowed to lower the tome of the place by making some items out of what I have found washed up on the beach.

Then the parish in which I live decided to have a scarecrow festival. I have contributed every year for 9 years. scarecrows are made of things which would otherwise have been thrown away and I have turned what I found on the beach or on the roadside into wind-powered mobiles of increasing complexity.

Years ago I started to compile a list of things which could be made out of plastic bottles. Amongst the 30 odd possibilities was a raft. I made one in 1996 out of litre milk bottles and a folding (zed) bed from the council tip. I entered it in a raft race and was awarded the wooden spoon. I am now, still, working out ways of reducing the drag.

"The problem of contemporary sculpture and the garden is one which has rankled in my mind for years. It is usually resolved through a process of inversion-that is turning it into sculpture in the garden as against garden sculpture. By that I mean the sculptor takes over the garden as an open exhibition gallery, of which the focus is their creation, to which the world of nature merely provides the frame.The Idea that sculpture is a contributory element to an overall'mise en scene',in which, sometimes its role may be incedental rather than central, has been lost.In this we have seen the betrayall of the great tradition of garden sculpture, one which was unashamed at being decorative or delightful."
