‘Logo’ involves the transformation of an abandoned office letter tray, by filling the spaces that once held paper with cast concrete. While this may have something to do with Wentworth’s admission of having no aptitude for organising paperwork the result is that a slim piece of office furniture has become a formidable block. According to Wentworth, the strip of tyre on which it sits, once released from its regular enclosed circular form ‘acts a bit like an animal, flipping about, having a life of its own when you try and handle it’.

British sculptor Richard Wentworth attended Hornsey College of Art and the Royal College of Art. Experimenting with a range of materials and procedures, Wentworth manipulates and juxtaposes every-day, often disregarded objects to create sculptures that play with scale, gravity, ordinariness and language. Wentworth has exhibited since the 1970s. He taught at Goldsmith’s College, London, from 1971 to 1987. His work was the subject of a major solo exhibition at Tate Liverpool in 2005.View Artist
