Information

On show at Bodelwyddan Castle from 21 September to 17 November 2013, Beastly Machines is an exhibition of kinetic sculptures by Derbyshire-based artist Johnny White. White has specialised in kinetic works since 1988 and constructs them mainly from found and scavenged materials. His light-hearted artworks, animated using electronics, mechanics and pneumatics, also have a serious side as they serve to illustrate certain underlying environmental themes.

  1. There’s an artist here in the city where I live who does that type of thing…always very amusing and incredibly artistic, using pieces of scrap metal and odds and ends. I like taking the country road out past his house every now and then to see what is new in his yard. One day it was an angel made of metal, and other times, it has been animals or people. Nice photos, GS. 🙂
