Neil Ferber`s father was a child refugee from Germany in the 1930s, who remained in England after the war and married an Englishwoman. Neil was born in Wales and educated in Cardiff. He became interested in art while still at school, making models and objects in a shed at the bottom of his parents` garden. He went to Bulmershe College, Reading where he studied sculpture under Dennis Harland and Alf Parks.
Reclusive and individualist Neil has exhibited only occasionally. He has always avoided following fashionable or commercial trends in art, believing in the traditional values of fine art techniques. Through a period of many varying styles and trends, Neil has consistently worked in an abstract mode, modelling in clay or wax and casting sculptures in a variety of modern materials, experimenting with different textures and finishes. His work is architectural, constantly exploring the relationships of mass and space. The main influences throughout his career have been European - looking towards Brancusi and Eduardo Chillida.
In 2005 Neil was invited to establish a studio in Peralta, Tuscany, as sculptor in residence. Peralta is a small medieval hamlet restored by the Italian Sculptor Fiore de Henriquez. Neil worked there for 6 years before moving to the nearby town of Pietrasanta, the Italian ‘citta d’arte’, close to the Carrara marble quarries. The town has had a history of sculpture-making since Roman times and is famous for being the place where Michaelangelo came to work on ‘David’. It is the perfect place for a sculptor to work and take advantage of the many studios and foundries that still flourish.
