ALAN THORNHILL (1921-2020)
patinated terracotta (fire clay)
74 x 51 cm (29 x 20 in)
Conceived in Putney in 1972
My aspiration has been to achieve in the round objects inviting scrutiny from many angles and removes, challenging and hopefully affecting the viewer. With practice over time the displacement of attention away from the subject adds the complexities sensed as ‘content’ to creep or flow into the work from which the viewer, including the sculptor himself, can obtain an unfathomable degree of mystified satisfaction.
