Catalogue Note

‘I would call it attitude, you know, the way that you can make something almost talk by the way the neck is bent, or the attitude of the head; you can actually make these sculptures talk, they say something according to the exact balance, whereas if they’re absolutely straight… well, I suppose that’s saying something, too’
Lynn Chadwick
(quoted in D. Farr & E. Chadwick, Lynn Chadwick Sculptor, with a complete illustrated catalogue 1947-2005, Lund Humphries, 2006, p. 11)
