Alyosha Moeran’s work focuses on the sensory: seeking out the rhythm and harmony of the stone and making use of negative space and piercing to create works with a wonderful sense of life, rhythm, and energy. His work is finely balanced with an innate tensile strength and harmony, reflecting the natural cycle of life often reflected through leaf or fern-like shapes.
Alyosha was brought up in Japan and moved to the UK at thirteen. He read History at Cambridge before discovering stone carving, and has worked variously as a dry stonewaller, restoration carver, letter-carver and sculptor. He trained in stonemasonry at the Building Craft College and later in architectural stone carving at the City and Guilds London School of Art in 1996.
Alyosha has since undertaken Public Art Commissions across the UK. He has exhibited at ‘On Form’ at Astall Manor and now works at his studio in East Sussex.
