Biography / CV of John McKennaJohn Mc Kenna`s Biography
I work in a variety of scales, colossal, heroic, domestic, on public and private commissions, producing my own work or rising readily to the challenge of a clients design brief. My smaller works using the human form seek to achieve balance, sensitivity and quietude for the observer to contemplate and aim to pacify the senses in an increasinly demanding social environment.
Since 1993 I have worked primarily on public art schemes throughout the whol of the country. Working with architects, developers, councils and public art agencies usually to strict deadlines, producing high quality artwork of my own design or on a collaborative basis with other artists and sculptors.
I have extensive working experience of a variety of media and scales, large cast bronzes and aluminium, glased brick architectural reliefs, stone and cast stone, terracotta, fibreglass and welded steel.
