Bryan Kneale

Five Decades

25th March - 2nd May 2015

Highly respected Royal Academician Bryan Kneale presents five decades of sculpture and works on paper. An exemplary draughtsman and painter, his artistic career began at the easel; perhaps as an omen of things to come his painting was thick, spiky and constructed with a palette knife onto the canvas. With an innate fear of repetition he looked to sculpture and learned to forge and weld, working in brass, steel, copper and aluminium; his is not the traditional sculpture of carving, casting and modelling. The first abstract sculptor to be elected a Royal Academician in 1974, this exhibition underlines the importance of Bryan Kneale in the development of 20th Century British sculpture.
