  • Theo Harper is an artist and researcher based in Northumberland, UK. His practice spans site-specific installation, sculpture, video, and photography. Clay always at the centre; Theo interrogates material and processes, intuitively inventing ways to release expressive making narratives. It is a constant inquiry: Born out of repetitive, time consuming and layered techniques. Theo believes that; by mastering different making systems, it is possible to break apart pre-existing realities.

    Theo studied Sculpture at the Royal College of Art, London. He has shown work nationally and internationally and taken part in various residencies. Alongside gallery-based exhibitions he has organized various projects that include a permanent installation in a terraced house, London (2013-16), a cliff polishing in Cornwall (2014) and more recently taken part in a three-month residency at EKWC in the Netherlands. Theo has been working on a AHRC funded PhD that he has completed in April 2022 titled A Hybrid Material; re-thinking computer aided design through hand-printing-clay
