Two titans of British sculpture, Lynn Chadwick and Geoffrey Clarke, are brought together in this show that focuses on their prolific careers. Gaining international recognition for their angular work Chadwick and Clarke became labeled the ‘geometry of fear’ sculptors. Both learnt to weld at the British Oxygen Company in Cricklewood in the 1950s, a technique yet to be embraced in art schools and would later represent Britain at the Venice Biennale in 1952. As their careers progressed Clarke went onto to pursue ecclesiastical commissions, while Chadwick infrequently accepted such public projects. Presenting both works for sale as well as pieces from private collections that have never been publically exhibited before, one highlight of the show is the inclusion of maquettes for two rare Chadwick commissions.
