'Better Off Dead' is an audacious hot sculpted artwork by the British artist, Elliot Walker.

The perfectly balanced arrow can be removed for transportation, yet when in place, it literally passes through the core of the apple. Appearing as if aimed, shot and finally piercing the glistening fruit, yet held static in this frozen moment.    

Combining exceptional glass making skills with a novelist’s ability for storytelling, Walker literally sculpts his glass, creating artworks that are the essence of curiosity, inviting the viewer closer.

His Still Life compositions have the poise of classical paintings. Symbols of domestic life are carefully balanced with the transient. Luscious exotic fruits and foods are bisected revealing their richly coloured interiors, these will never decay but are permanently held in this fleeting moment.

The artist can also create pieces to commission, please contact the gallery for further information.
