Der Bildhauer HEX lebt und arbeitet nördlich von München. Von 1989 bis 2011 arbeitete er ausschließlich in Stahl und Edelstahl. Seit der Aufnahme in die ROYAL BRITISH SOCIETY OF SCULPTORS 2011 und dem anschließenden Stipendium hat sich sein Materialspektrum um Bronze und Marmor erweitert. Dieses Stipendium für Bronzeguss, welches vom BRIAN MERCER CHARITABLE TRUST finanziert wird, führte HEX 2012 für 3 Monate in die Bildhauermetropole Pietrasanta / Toskana, wo er seither regelmäßig arbeitet. 2014 und 2016 wurde er eingeladen an bedeutenden Gruppenausstellungen der University Of Leicester ( Kuratorin Helaine Blumenfeld OBE ) und des Burghley House teilzunehmen. Hierfür entwickelte der Künstler HEX die ersten Skulpturen der Asteroid Serie, welche in England zu großem Erfolg führten. Im Dezember 2016 wurde HEX zum Fellow ( F.R.B.S. ) der RBS gewählt. www.rbs.org.uk

Seit 2005 ist HEX Mitglied von sculpture-network, einer Organisation mit Sitz in München die von Ralf Kirberg gegründet wurde und inzwischen ca. 1100 internationale Mitglieder hat.

Das Brian Mercer Bronzeguss-Stipendium 2012 in der Fonderia Artistica Mariani Pietrasanta

Das Brain Mercer Bronzeguss-Stipendium trägt sämtliche Kosten für den dreimonatigen Aufenthalt eines Bildhauers in Pietrasanta ( Toskana ) um ihm die fabelhafte Gelegenheit zu geben, unter der Anleitung von Meistern, mit Bronze zu experimentieren. Ziel ist es einen Bildhauer, ohne vorherige Erfahrung im Umgang mit Bronze, in die Lage zu versetzen die technischen Aspekte des Arbeitens in Bronze zu erlernen und dadurch seine Entwicklung voran zu treiben und seine praktischen Fähigkeiten auszubauen. Das Stipendium eröffnet dem erfolgreichen Bewerber die Möglichkeit Seite an Seite mit den Artigiani der berühmten Fonderia Artistica Mariani zu arbeiten und hierbei den Ablauf des Wachs-Ausschmelz-Verfahrens, vom Entwurf des eigenen Modells in Ton und Wachs bis hin zu den letzten Arbeitsschritten mit Treibeisen und Patina, kennenzulernen. Das Brian Mercer Bronzeguss-Stipendium wurde 2008 an Samantha Donnelley, 2009 an Briony Marshall, 2010 an Anne Mercedes, 2011 an Kate McLeod, 2012 an HEX, 2013 an Richard Stone, 2014 an Richard Jackson, 2015 an Alexandra Harley und 2016 an Stephen Duncan vergeben und findet jeweils im Folgejahr statt.

The Brian Mercer Bronze Casting Residency 2012 at the Fonderia Artistica Mariani Pietrasanta

A fully supported scholarship to experiment with bronze under instruction from master craftsmen for three months, the Brian Mercer Bronze Casting Residency in Pietrasanta (Tuscany) is a fabulous opportunity for a professional sculptor. The aim is to enable a sculptor without previous experience of working in bronze to learn the technical aspects of the casting process, thus expanding their skills and developing their practice. The residency offers the successful candidate the opportunity to work alongside the artisans of the renowned Fonderia Artistica Mariani, developing an understanding of the lost wax process, from the creation of their own models in clay and wax to the finishing stages with chisel and patina. The Brian Mercer Casting Bronze Residency in Pietrasanta was awarded in 2008 to Samantha Donnelly, in 2009 to Briony Marshall, in 2010 to Anne Mercedes, in 2011 to Kate McLeod, in 2012 to HEX, in 2013 to Richard Stone, in 2014 to Richard Jackson, in 2015 to Alexandra Harley and in 2016 to Stephen Duncan. The Residency always takes place in the following year.
