More art in the wilds of Yorkshire!
Below is an immensely sized sculpture by Jonathan Borofsky. Molecule man 1+1+1. I enjoy being able to glimpse the greenery through the little holes in the metal men.
Disturbing figures linger under the trees.
Below are Riace – works by Elizabeth Frink. Frink was a leading figure in British sculpture and was part of the post-war group of British sculptors known as the Geometry of Fear school.
The four Riace sculptures were inspired by the discovery of two fifth-century BC Greek bronze sculptures in the sea off Southern Italy in the 1970s.
Frink saw them on display in Florence and described how ‘the original figures are very beautiful, but also very sinister’. The bronzes depict ancient Greek mercenaries: warriors who would fight in exchange for sacrificial offerings in their benefit
On a lighter note here is Niki de Saint Phalle’s, Buddha 2000. I love all the colourful mosaic detail on this one.
Even more sculpturey goodness to come!!
