Outdoor sculptures and public art often form an integral part of a community, and can be found in almost all public areas in one form or another. Outdoor sculptures are often erected in commemoration of a particular person or event, serving as a landmark for the community in which they stand. In other cases, the art is installed as a way of enhancing the surroundings and environment into which it has been placed.
Outdoor art and sculptures can be made from a wide variety of materials, including metal, stone, wood and fibreglass. The problems associated with outdoor sculptures and public art are often intertwined with the environment in which they are located and the materials from which they are made. Typically, the damage we see with outdoor sculptures results from factors such as pollution, lack of maintenance, vandalism and accidents, as well as deterioration of the original materials (for example, corrosion on metal sculptures).
The treatment we undertake on your outdoor sculpture of public art will be tailored specifically to suit the needs of the piece, and will take into account factors such as current damage, the environment and location in which it is situated and future of intended uses. Depending on the nature of the sculpture, treatment may include cleaning, patching or fills, repairs, repainting or coating, and removal of corrosion and application of anti-corrosion treatment and repair of damage.
We also have considerable experience in the relocation of large sculptures and public art, and can advise on options or budget costs should you need to relocate an artwork or sculpture that is under your care.
