biography

Will Cruickshank was born in 1974 in UK.

He has a multidisciplinary practice which includes sculpture, film, photography, and printmaking, alongside machines and participatory works.

His recent practice has focused on making objects through the development of experimental machinery, materials, and production methods.  This began in three grain silos in Essex, which he converted as studio spaces in 2015.  Often repurposing equipment such as cement mixers, bikes, or potters wheels he has devised complex makeshift weaving machines, improvised lathes, printing presses, and water carving techniques.  This period of research was funded by Arts Council England through 2018-19. 

Material, machine, and maker, each take their turn in leading or resisting outcomes and it is a sensitivity to this push and pull that drives the work.  It is a practice grounded in learning by doing, and thinking through making.

Will now lives and works in Devon, where he set up a new studio this year.
