Developed in partnership with Messums Wiltshire, A Gathering of Uncertainties presents the culmination of 10 years of work by British sculptor Laurence Edwards. This is the first comprehensive survey of Edwards’ work to be shown in Australia, offering a rare encounter with one of the UK’s leading figurative artists.
One of the few sculptors who casts his own work, Laurence Edwards is fascinated by human anatomy and the metamorphosis of form and matter that governs the lost-wax process. His sculptures express the raw liquid power of bronze, its versatility, mass and evolution, and the variety of process marks he retains tell the story of how and why each work came to be.
A touring exhibition from Messums Wiltshire.
