Waddington Galleries is pleased to present an exhibition of sculptures and paintings by William Turnbull. On show will be a selection of bronze Horse sculptures, dating from 1946 to 2000 as well as these will be other sculptures and paintings that have not been previously exhibited.
Turnbull has consistently re-worked the theme of Horse throughout his career, in his own words: ‘It is very interesting to see the possibility of enormous variation. It is not necessary to take a new theme, but to transpose something.’ Horse, 1946 was one of Turnbull’s first sculptures. Other sculptures such as Metamorphic Venus 3, 1982 point to Turnbull’s concern with reducing a form to its essence, ‘I respond to sculpture which is very holistic, very simple, and acts from a core outwards’.
