Ed Rust’s first taste of artistic acknowledgement came at the tender age of just 9-years when he bagged a Brooke Bond National Schools Award for Art. Although his prize was merely a £5 book token, it’s what he spent his booty on that spoke volumes and pointed towards his future career direction then and there (despite going on to take a roundabout route thereafter). Remembering the time, the exciting contemporary sculpture art exponent says; “I bought art books; Paul Klee, El Greco (admittedly weird choices really for a 9-year old) and, more importantly, a History of Sculpture book.” That said, it was within the pages of this much-thumbed title that the highly impressionable Rust first clapped eyes on sculptures created by the revered likes of (future heroes) Henry Moore and Barbara Hepworth.
Fast forward a few decades, and as of autumn 2017, Rust reveals his own brand new limited edition bronze sculpture, entitled ‘Making the Break’. Standing 10” x 18” in height, this plinth-based, hand-signed three-dimensional construct perpetuates the best-selling Rust’s enduring creative mantra, regarding the manifestation of spindle-like bronzes which symbolise fluid movements and life, as opposed to static, non-descript studies.
