London Trip (4/7/15) Part 3
The third and final highlight of the day was unexpected really as I thought I had missed the show as we moved around London. Making our way to Islington to see work at the Parasol Unit, which is next door to the Victoria Miro Gallery where I found 10 bronze by Conrad Shawcross part of his show Inverted Spires and Descendent Folds, steel and mirror sculptures that were made as maquettes for larger pieces. Which as you can see are pieces in their own right.
Some of the pieces are asking to be explored more, as the defy gravity to stand upright. I really want to see them as finished large-scale sculptures now. It’s good to know that any part of an artist’s practice can be exhibited, not just traditional sketches from living practicing artists.
