Born 1964 in Sheffield, Mick Kirkby-Geddes is a sculptor who uses everyday objects and scrap metal to create his own personal style of work.
He has a very keen eye for finding interesting forms within what most people would regard as junk. He attended Leeds Polytechnic (1985) BA Hons Fine Art.
He has had solo shows at Fine Art Consultancy, London and annually (2004-2010) with Lupton Square Gallery, Honley. Also, ‘Metalhead’, Huddersfield Art Gallery, ‘Born to be Weld’, Crescent Arts Workshop, Scarborough and ‘It’s a Mad Mad Weld’ at Treadwell Gallery, Bradford. Amongst his ‘Selected Public Art Commissions’ are in June 2013 – The Aire Sculpture Trail at Saltaire Village in 2012, Washpit Mill, Washpit, Holmfirth, HD9 2RD.
In May 2013 Mick installed a 15 piece sculpture trail at Saltaire, Bradford and in March 2012 twelve sculptural benches at Holme Valley, Holmfirth, Yorkshire.
He states “The transformation from junk to art gives them a different slant and hopefully a touch of humour”.
