Lynn Chadwick: Evolution in Sculpture
Lynn Chadwick Evolution in Sculpture was the first major solo show of the British sculptor Lynn Chadwick in a public gallery since 2004. The exhibition comprising more than 50 works was presented at both Abbot Hall Art Gallery and Blackwell Arts & Crafts House in association with Osborne Samuel Gallery and the estate of Lynn Chadwick. Exhibition dates 28 March – 15 June 2013 reaffirming Chadwick’s status as one of the most significant artists in post-war Britain. This exhibition catalogue demonstrates the range and quality of Chadwick’s output, from the earliest abstract mobiles and extraordinary human/beast/machine hybrid metal constructions of the 1950s and 1960s, through to the imposing, monumental figures of his late period. Alongside are Chadwick’s drawings and the late David Farrell’s prints and photographs of the artist at work. This catalogue includes essays by Peter Osborne and Lakeland Arts Trust Curator Nick Rogers. 70 pages with colour images.
