b. 1973, Bascombe, UK
Gary Webb emerged as an artist towards the end of the 1990's. Working as a sculptor he predominantly uses industrial materials to produce colourful and glossy works that frequently make reference to popular culture, as well as the formal concerns of traditional sculpture. Reworking materials such as glass, plexiglas, neon, wood, sand, cut metal, rubber, marble or prefabricated materials, Webb's work sometimes appears to parody modernist sculpture. Frequently applying traditional craft techniques to industrial or organic materials he combines elements to create configurations that enable materials to spontaneously confer to both a playful and poetic effect.
