John Byam

John Byam (1929-2013) was many things in his life, including a railway worker and service man, but is often stated to be a grave digger in his own time though he carved and drew. John's primitive carving assemblages are fascinating and compelling, they are so human in their flimsy nature and their observation. John used a mix of sawdust and glue which often give his works a freshly made look and soft focus.
