Lynn Chadwick at Le Bristol Paris
Lynn Chadwickuntil late January 2019
Le Bristol Paris, in association with Blain|Southern and the Chadwick Estate, bring together four exceptional works by the late Lynn Chadwick (1914-2003).
In this powerful ensemble we have curated an unfolding story of motion that Chadwick so effectively captured in each of his works.
1965 Bronze 180 cm Edition 1 of 4
1979 Bronze 200 x 75 x 60 cm Edition of 6 - this is EA/1
183 x 70 x 53 cm
Edition of 4 - this is 0/4
1972 Bronze 80 x 115 x 183 cm Edition 3 of 4
Monitor (1965) the most elemental in form of the three works carries the abstraction of human form to an extreme. This piece stands seemingly ‘observing’ the later work Teddy Boy & Girl (1979) which captures the lightness and sense of movement at odds with the intrinsically static aspect of sculpture. On the opposing side of the garden we have Dancers (1967) which is both intimate and at the same time powerful. This power revealed by the connection at the hip that provided an interesting interplay of shape and mass.
The collection is completed with Two Reclining Figures (1972) further developing the sense of intimacy as they lay together under the shade of the tree.
