Edition 3 of 6
Three of Edwards’ ‘Walking Men’ were installed on the Reed Lawn at Snape Maltings in 2022, as part of the ‘Remains to be Seen’ exhibition at the Aldeburgh Festival.
Five ‘Walking Men’ were part of a major presentation of Edwards’ large scale bronzes and maquettes at Messums Wiltshire in 2022. SCULPTURE was the largest presentation of Edwards’ work to date.
In February 2023 a major touring exhibition of Edwards’ large scale sculpture and maquettes, including five Walking Men, travelled to Orange Regional Gallery, in New South Wales, Australia.
Following this, Edwards’ ‘Walking Men’ are on display at the Art Gallery of New South Wales, Australia, populating the stepped terrace looking towards the Sydney Opera House.
One of the few sculptors who casts his own work, Laurence Edwards is fascinated by human anatomy and the metamorphosis of form and matter that governs the lost-wax process.
