Major stone sculpture show comes to London
ONE OF Britain’s most acclaimed contemporary stone sculpture exhibitions is coming to London. Usually presented every two years at Asthall Manor in Oxfordshire, and following its successful run there during the summer of 2012, this June onform comes to the capital for the first time.
The work of 19 sculptors, including Bridget McCrum and Peter Randall-Page, is showcased in the exhibition which combines both established and new talent. Showing in the atmospheric subterranean galleries of the Crypt at St Pancras Church, and using the outdoor spaces around the church, onform london is open to the public from June 7 to June 26, 2013.
Other sculptors taking part in onform london are: Peter Brooke-Ball, Katusha Bull, Aly Brown, Frederic Chevarin, Luke Dickinson, Simon Hitchens, Jonathan Loxley, William Peers, Jordi Raga Frances, Julian Rena, Rachel Schwalm, Sarah Smith, Guy Stevens, Anthony Turner, Lucy Unwin, Paul Vanstone and Dominic Welch.
Creating both figurative and abstract works, this diverse collection of artists carve in a rich variety of stone sourced from all over the world, including dark grey Kilkenny limestone, honey coloured calcite, Italian blue alabaster, red sandstone and grey-white Carrara marble. The sculpture selected for onform london ranges in size from desk top pieces to much larger works for outdoor display.
