PETROC SESTI
b. 1973, London, UK. Lives and works in London, UK.

Petroc Sesti presents sculptures and paintings in constant, but variable motion; both static and fluid, dynamic and stable. Sesti’s works create dialogues with their environments, from sculptures that occupy urban cities, to the liquid lens of optical spheres located within the rural landscape, creating beauty in the dichotomy between natural and man-made objects.
