Luke creates small rounded forms from Portland stone and marble that are gorgeous to touch and becoming to the eye. His works relate to natural forms and domestic objects without being either. His intention is to suggest something ancient while being new, light whilst having mass, purpose without being explicit.
“Dickenson uses white marble that turns into fields of crystal that somehow look almost edible. Modern abstract sculpture is hard to describe, but Dickinson’s is sexy”.
Catherine Milner, Sunday Telegraph
Born in 1964, Luke trained as a stonemason before working on Winchester and Salisbury Cathedrals. This was followed by study of stone caring at City and Guilds of London Art School before embarking on an MA in Site Specific Sculpture at Wimbledon School of Art. He has worked in Carrara, Italy as well as doing a number of landscape projects in Zimbabwe, Pakistan and India. He has exhibited widely in the UK and done many commissions most recently for the Homerton Hospital in east London and the new P and O cruise ship Britannia.
