Biography / CV of Jonathan Hateley

Jonathan Hateley has sculpted most of his life, although it was only in recent years that he felt the desire to produce work of his own designs and choosing. Before taking this new path, his career has been varied, challenging and exciting. He completed a degree in graphic design in 1986 where he concentrated on illustration in both two and three dimensions. He moved to London and began sculpting for the theatre, firstly on the `Phantom of the Opera` production and then for four years at the English National Opera Company. This was followed by many years working to tight deadlines and sculpting just about anything for TV, theatre and film. At this stage he was also illustrating for publishers. Having been through so many of the commercial applications for sculpture, he now finds himself with the freedom to realize his own ideas.

Since taking this path, Jonathan Hateley has received three commissions from Kent County Council for sculptures sited at new schools in the area. Jonathan continues to exhibit at venues such as RHS Wisley, the Affordable Art Fair, through various galleries and has also exhibited at the Yvonne Arnaud Art Exhibition and at the Mall Galleries through the RBA.

2003, joined Surrey Sculpure Society
2003, joined TWASI (The Wildlife Arts Society International)

Artist Statement of Jonathan Hateley

Jonathan Hateley`s personal statement
I like to create shapes and forms in clay, normally inspired from aspects of nature, sometimes adhering closely to the original subject or using it as the basis for something else. I like detail, be it realistic, an exaggerated take on what I see or simply marks which add to the form of the piece. This detail, while sometimes illustrative in bas-relief, is also textural and I often use repetition of subject, form or mark to create an overall texture, drawing the observer in, having presented them with the initial form.

The design is important to me and I will quite often have a graphic shape in mind on which to base the sculpture. My work is generally representational, both of the human figure, wildlife and other aspects of nature, though these can often be the basis for abstract shapes. I look for the beauty in things, sometimes finding it unlikely places and enhance the details I see in them and create forms from these. They can have an element of quirkiness, show movement or poise, but are formed with the intention of them sitting harmoniously with nature.
