Reflections on the Good, the Bad and the Ugly

Reflections on the Good, the Bad and the Ugly (see Figures 1 and 2) is positioned through an account of an archive site at a particular moment in history - the Tate. Germaine Richier's L'Eau 1953-4 and Reg Butler's Working Model for ‘The Unknown Political Prisoner’ 1955-6, were both viewed by me at what is now known as Tate Britain in the late 1970s. Weaving textures of childhood influence, imagination and my own aspiration to sculpt in the finest tradition, this work extrapolates the detail of my sculptural thinking through making.
