Ready-mades natural materials and household detritus. He often works with found, mass produced objects, such as television sets, ornaments, the used and the useless, subverting their functions to play with conventional systems of classification and notions of so-called high and low art to provide fresh perspectives on the things that constitute the world around us.

His approach to making sculptures is to draw upon art history as well as contemporary cultural and political events.

International exhibitions including Germany, Netherlands, Australia, USA, United Arab Emirates and Cyprus and he has recently been invited to make works in China and Sweden.

  1. The 4 Horses of Apocalypse by Anthony Heywood
    One of The Sculpture Park’s most loved sculptures. This thought-provoking work is created from nostalgic artefacts of days gone by. Typewriters, plastic toys and tv screens have all stood the test of time, bound together into this meaningful sculpture. A serious message underlines the work; by recreating the form of the steeds of the mythical ‘Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse’ and removing their human riders, a vision of a possible future; pollution overrunning the earth, is presented. Artist Anthony Heywood’s approach to making sculptures was to draw upon art history as well as contemporary culture and political events. He sadly passed away in April 2022 but we are proud to be able to carry on exhibiting his four horses to inspire visitors to our sculpture park in Churt, Farnham, Surrey. Learn More
