Trevor Askin cast his first bronze sculpture in 1980. Over the years, Trevor has developed his own style of abstracted sculpture, he calls his style “ Curvilinear” to describe the unique way that the bronze appears to be folded and rounded. Trevor uses the method of lost wax casting (Cire Perdue) to make his sculptures.
“There is a nobility about bronze” and an everlastingness that Trevor revels in, his sculptures are made to last forever. Widely sought after by collectors his ‘curvilinear’ pieces are one-off sculptures, Trevor does not have a master mould for any of these works. He completes every step in the production of his bronze sculptures himself from his studio and foundry in the South Island.
With International & national commissions under his belt, Trevor is a very collectable New Zealand artist. His works are in private collections in the United States, Canada, England, Switzerland, Japan, Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, Australia, Singapore, Hong Kong, Korea, France and New Zealand.
Trevor enjoys creating sculptures that are uplifting to the spirit but also finds the need to express his feelings of hurt and despair by creating whimsical or abstract sculpture.
