"'Still and still moving (T.S. Eliot' takes Michelangelo’s David and twists his figure around 90 degrees. David (1504), is famous for his relaxed contrapposto and the traditional history of sculpture sees this subtle rotation in the has a vital signifier of the Renaissance. This piece playfully takes that tilt and tilts a little further – creating a full twist and one of the effects of this twist is to transform the contour of the figure into almost fabric like folds. David is perhaps the apotheosis of human perfectibility. At a few inches tall – this sculpture is intended to be played with like an executive toy – placed in any orientation – irreverently on its head or falling over." Nick Hornby

"The work of Sol Bailey-Barker draws its breath from myths, legends and mathematics. He courts the earth with sculptures that balance like satellite dishes upon ancient cairns. His pieces evoke the stars and spectrum of deep carbon. Hollowness, balance and light fused with deep thoughtful meditations on being, change and symbol." James Thomas for Nomadic Press

Introducing Nick Hornby at Beaux Arts London for Sculpture: Modern and Contemporary.

Nick Hornby (b.1980), a sculptor whose practice is an inquiry into the nature of art history. His sculptures are formed from the intersection of quotations from the art historical cannon. Each piece is a computational calculation which is transcribed into traditional materials like Bronze or Marble. The works selected reference Michelangelo’s David and 19th Century portrait busts all of which are on display at the Victoria and Albert Museum. .
.
Sculpture: Modern and Contemporary’ will run from today until 26 January 2019.

“I think my first fully conscious comment on the world's inhumanity were the Goggle Heads. When I moved to France I got interested in the Algerian War, which was then just only over. It still rumbled away, the horror of it. What really triggered the series were some rather extraordinary photographs of people like General Oufkir. They all hid behind dark glasses, and these became a symbol of evil for me. The title 'Goggle Heads' was rather facetious, a way of dealing with the horror of the imagery. At the same time photographs played an important part in suggesting my images” Elisabeth Frink

"Her drawings – which should more properly be called paintings – were not notes for sculptures made in private sketchbooks, but public statements, as ample and outgoing as her sculptures. They were not a secondary, but a parallel creative activity, and they were made in a similarly vigorous, bold and assertive way." Julian Spalding, ‘Frink’s Last Word’, 2011

Elisabeth Frink will be featured on BBC Radio 3's 'Free Thinking' tonight at 10pm GMT.

Since her death in 1993, Frink’s main contribution to sculpture is recognized in her depiction of the male figure, and in particular, the anonymous, monumental head. This was also her central obsession and she was at her best when exploring man’s shockingly violent relationship with society – and his capacity for both heroism and cowardice. As she herself said: “thugishness is a bit of a preoccupation with me”. The Desert Quartet of 1989 were the final heads that Frink produced and at over 4 feet/1.2 metres they are also the largest and most impending/monumental. Inspired by a visit to the Tunisian desert and more specifically, the Algerian War, Frink was attempting to convey and explore the quality of evil.

"The Dying King is one of my key pieces from the 1960s. He's dying on a battlefield. The idea came from seeing a film which showed Richard III being killed in battle, stabbed to death as he put his arm up to fend his attackers off. And i'd been going round churches for two or three days earlier, looking at the figures on medieval tombs, which I found quite wonderful. So it's a crusader figure on a tomb. I didn't develop an idea from Dying King, it sort of stopped." Elisabeth Frink.
The sculpture was included in the controversial 1978 Arts Council Hayward Annual: the first to be organised by women showing predominately women artists.

"Referring to some of her later work she frequently expressed her feelings that humankind had lost something important, the respect for all life. In her Man and Baboon drawing, 1990 the human animal is portrayed as seeking moral guidance from the ape." Catalogue Essay 2013, Annette Ratuszniak
