About the Artist

Born in Ipswich, Suffolk, Exworth was brought up in Constable country. He attended Ipswich School of Art and the Royal College of Art. He was influenced by the Suffolk church sculpture and architecture. He arrived in Cornwall in the 1960s and has remained here ever since. Exworth believes that sculpture should have some social context and not be completely impersonal. He received awards from the Arts Council in 1975, 1977 and 1984 and a South West Arts Fellowship in 1985.
