About Ali Jeffery

Ali Jeffery is primarily a sculptor, using natural materials ~ wood and ceramic. Her work has a distinctly organic quality, being abstracted from naturally occurring objects and the rural landscape that informs and inspires her and her studies in natural Sciences are an obvious influence. Her work is concerned with line, poise, movement and texture and often has a surreal and humorous feel to it. Her work is very sensuous and tactile. Ali Jeffery makes sculpture in response to a variety of situations; smaller, domestic scale pieces for galleries, larger outdoor pieces for gardens/sculpture parks, and private or public art commissions with a functional aspect (abstract furniture). Because of the organic quality of her work, she prefers her work to be situated outside.

She has two chainsaws, one for each hand.

"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."

Customer comment on 'Forest Fairy 2 (Bronze Dancer Contemporary statue)' by Plamen Dimitrov
Dear Peter (ArtParkS), Plamen (artist)

Just today the package with the sculpture ”Forest Fairy” has arrived. Safe, perfectly packed. I must say “Forest Fairy” is really beautiful, great! I like her very much, her hands, her emotional dance, feelings hidden in her body. Thank you for filling my home with beauty. I wish you both a lot of enthusiasm for marvellous work you do.
