“Chadwick has always been intrigued by movement, either actual or implied, in his sculpture. From his early mobiles to his dancing Teddy Boy and Girl series of the 1950s to his cloaked walking women with windswept hair of the 1980s, he has explored figures in motion. Sometimes their cloaks and draperies flow out in the wind from behind them, or are caught by a gust and wrap themselves around the figures. This essentially lateral progression gives place to a vertical rhythm in his groups of, usually two, figures” (Dennis Farr & Eva Chadwick, Lynn Chadwick, Sculptor, Oxford, 1990, p. 15).
The artist himself made the following remarks concerning his sculptures: “When I start to work, I wait till I feel what I want to do; and I know how I am working by the presence or lack of a rhythmic impulse. I think that to attempt to analyse the ability to draw ideas from their subconscious source would almost certainly interfere with that ability.”
