Lynn Chadwick: Out of the Shadows

by Edward Lucie-Smith

The constructivist and abstract works Lynn Chadwick produced between 1963 and 1966 have largely escaped critical notice or exposition but are an essential element in any analysis of Chadwick’s unique approach to making sculpture. These sculptures demonstrate that far from sticking to one form of expression during the cultural upheaval of pop, op, and minimalist art, Chadwick was as in touch with the zeitgeist as many of his younger contemporaries.

Out of the Shadows: Unseen Sculptures of the 1960s is the most complete survey of Chadwick’s abstract works ever realised and finally recognises how inventive and experimental Chadwick really was. The fully illustrated catalogue gives these abstract works the prominence they deserve within his output as a whole.
