Ralph Koltai is Britain’s senior and celebrated theatre designer. He has embarked on a new challenge, returning to his roots as a 3-dimensional artist, creating a series of metal collages, mostly made from found objects on farms near his studio in France.
Koltai selects panels or pieces, predominantly metal, and dissects them in a compositional form.

A sheet of rusty metal became a wall in Simon Boccanegra; a dish and sphere the entrance to Caliban’s cave in The Tempest.
