Kenneth Armitage Monumental 'Reach for the Stars'

Masterpiece London 2016

Pangolin London is pleased to announce that in the centenary of Kenneth Armitage’s birth, his monumental sculpture Reach for the Stars will be exhibited at this years Masterpiece. This poignant and important work, is both Armitage’s final sculpture and at 30ft, also his most monumental.

Armitage’s later works often feature symbolic arms in gestures of reaching or welcome. Reach for the Stars depicts both hand and star, supported on an arm that is simultaneously human and architectural; it perfectly captures Armitage’s original inspiration: “If you reach for the stars you might just reach the rooftops.
