Wharton Dietrich Faust LANG

Wharton Dietrich Faust LANG SWLA HRSMA

Having grown up in Cornwall, Lang was a student at Leonard John FULLER's St Ives School of Painting, and aware of a wood-carving heritage:  ''Wood carving was a way of life practised by my forefathers in Bavaria and I too have learnt this craft from my father, Faust Emmanuel LANG.  Their tools have been passed down to me...I endeavour to reveal the vitality and beauty to be found in nature - through the medium of wood.'
