Sculpture Promenade 2012
Artists featured in the Fitzwilliam Museum's third Sculpture Promenade are Cambridge based sculptor Helaine Blumenfeld, British sculptor Peter Randall-Page and Japanese sculptor Kan Yasuda.
All three artists worked in the renowned sculpture centre of Pietrasanta, Italy, with the famous local Carrara marble.
Highlights of the 2012 displays will include:
- Little Seed - the proto-type sculpture of Peter Randall-Page's famous work on permanent display at the Eden Project in Cornwall.
- Tensei Tenmoku - a monumental two part arch sculpture by Kan Yasuda wrought in bronze.
- The Space Within - cast in bronze with billowing, fluid movement, this three part sculpture by Blumenfeld represents and creates a space within for reflection.
People are encouraged to interact with the pieces, as all three artists created their works with the aim of viewers being able to experience them as much through touch as visually.
Shoot it, share it, tweet it!
