About Jim Rattenbury
Jim Rattenbury studied fine art in Cheltenham and London, where he specialized in sculpture. A private scholarship brought him to the Spanish coast, near Estepona in 1968 and resulted an exhibition 'Coming Together' in 1969 in Bahia Dorada.
He moved to Spain in 1971, where he worked with architects on sculptural installations and made jewelry and sculpture using silver, gold, wood, and stone. After moving to Zürich in 1978 he began exhibiting and held the first of many one-man shows in 1982.
Although Rattenbury uses a wide variety of mediums and materials, most of his works are wall-based, two- and three-dimensional pieces.
