#FBF to Magdalena Abakanowicz's first open-air exhibition, ‘Bronze Figures’ in 1995. Her powerful portrayal of the figure explored human condition, the relationship between man and #nature, and #social and #political histories pertaining to her experience in Soviet-occupied #Poland. . #MagdalenaAbakanowicz, Twenty Standing Figures, 1994. 📸 @jontywilde #YSP #YorkshireSculpturePark #Yorkshire #Sculpture #Art

#WilliamTurnbull reworked the figure of the #horse throughout his career, reducing it to its basic form, as illustrated in Large Horse (1990). #Horses are a prevalent motif in #art and are often used in monuments of war heroes to signify power and victory in battle. Here, Turnbull offers a new interpretation on the theme of the horse in #sculpture – although large in scale, the work conveys a graceful innocence, suggesting movement more than power. . 📸 @jontywilde #YSP #YorkshireSculpturePark #Yorkshire

‘Penone’s materials of choice are #wood, #water and #stone. Over five decades, he has used them to conduct a profound, poetic investigation of how #humanity imposes itself on the natural world, and vice versa’ - @1843mag . #GiuseppePenone, A #Tree in the Wood, 2018 (installation view).

New in the open air! 'Envelope of Pulsation (For Leo)', 2017 by #PeterRandallPage is carved from the #granite of Blackenstone Quarry in #Dartmore, #Devon, and was made from the largest single block quarried from the site. It is a dedication to Randall-Page's late friend, Leo, who owned the #quarry. . This #sculpture is the latest in a series of works exploring the way in which subtle modulations of the stone’s surface can evoke a sense of internal structure in the imagination of the viewer and can be seen near #YSP's Camellia House. . 📸 pjvdbphoto.com/on form sculpture and the artist. #YorkshireSculpturePark #Yorkshire #ContemporaryArt #Stone
