Charles Gurrey

Carver and sculptor

York, North Yorkshire


text, sculpture, architecture


The majority of my work is done to commission, apart from participation in exhibitions by invitation.

The work seeks to develop text as image, and the uses of text in sculptural, concrete terms. The ambition is to make an internal connection between the text, the material, the context, the scale, the purpose for the work (where there is one) - all aspects of the piece combined to make a sculptural equivalent to the kind of meanings sought by concrete poetry texts.

Available for commissions
