Imogen Long is a recent BA Graduate in Historic Carving: Architectural Stone at the City & Guilds of London Art School. Her work explores forms and themes seen throughout the history of architectural stone carving – foliage, drapery, portraiture – sometimes remaining faithful to a particular historic period or, in other instances, finding new expression. Prior to learning stone carving, Imogen practiced as an architect, gaining RIBA conservation accreditation after working on theatres and arts buildings for over ten years. Her background in architecture provides her with a unique approach to carving. For instance, Imogen considers the incorporation of everchanging light as part of the experience of the works she creates and maintains a strong interest in how our interactions with materials shape our lives and the spaces around us.
