Here is an open invitation to all to a new exhibition at The Broadway Drawing School Gallery.

‘A Long Table of Curiosities’ showcases recent anatomical works, mostly life size, that pay due respect to the skill and craft element of historical wax modelling but which are completely contemporary in the way they are presented. The sculptures will constitute a new body of work, derived from drawings and studies that I have been working on in various medical museums, dissecting labs and mortuaries over recent years. Far from being gruesome or morbid, I hope these sculptures will demonstrate how a symbiotic relation between artistic expression and scientific knowledge has the potential to evoke a profound emotional response, whilst posing the question of how we, as human beings, can be at the same time so very different and yet so very much the same.
