After a night at Welbeck, we travelled on to the Yorkshire Sculpture Park.
Here was an exhibition that was going to appeal to both of us, Tony Crag, A Rare Category of Objects
Mr Uphilldowndale, likes nice pieces of wood, especially when they are constructed like this
It’s not all natural materials though,
Sensuous curving dice
and pinnacles of steel
They have a feel of sandstone weathered through the ages, this made me think of the cathedral in Kirkwall, Orkney.
There were also working drawings and maquettes, that illustrated how Cragg’s time spent working in laboratories, provided inspiration, here you can see glass flasks and test tubes, layer upon layer.
It was his biggest exhibition to date in the UK, and there were many sculptures in the park. This storm laden sky had me worried about the sculptures ability to conduct lightening!
