Mount Dora, Florida, October 2010 - January 2013.
Among Holofcener’s careers is songwriting, and as he greatly admired Lennon’s work, he produced this tribute to him. The sculpture is entitled ‘Imagine’. John’s arms are outstretched, his eyes closed. His face is to the sun wondering what the world would be like without conflict. The statue was unveiled on the 70th anniversary of Lennon’s birth in Mount Dora, Florida. In addition, Lawrence wrote a song for the attending crowd, ‘Can’t We Have Peace’? There it remained on loan inviting people to sit with him, much as tourists do with his sculpture of Churchill and Roosevelt in Bond Street.
We are grateful to the Artist's studio for their kind assistance with the cataloguing of the present work.
