The Wonderful World of Sculpture

I’ve concentrated a lot on nature and the physical world in my themed photo entries – be it flora, fauna, landscape – so I thought I’d branch out this time into the art world…specifically my favourite art-form: sculpture. I’m lucky to have family in Yorkshire and so have been to some amazing exhibitions at the YSP, and I’d recommend travelling to the Peak District in nearby Derbyshire for the annual ‘Beyond Limits’ exhibition at Chatsworth House. Make a weekend of it! There are also photos here from shows at Pashley Manor in Kent; from The Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden at NOMA; and from the Dalí Theatre-Museum in Figueres. Enjoy!
