100 days: sketched in marble by william peers

a while ago now, we mentioned (on our old blog) that we had been to visit our friends Sophie & Wim at their lovely home, for the viewing of the first of Wim's sculptures for his upcoming exhibition 100 days: sketched in marble. Wim carved 100 sculptures in 100 days and we were invited to see day 1 to day 30.

all 100 can now be seen at the John Martin Gallery in London from tomorrow 23rd april through to 15th may {details, credits & links below}.

from Wim's website:

100 days – 100 sculptures: By setting a boundary – restricting the time allowed for each piece, and therefore, the size of the work – there is a strange liberation. The constants of time and material also lend the series a unity: the sculptures are linked by their common constraints. William Peers writes: "The other motive is to explore the area between figuration and abstraction. I began as a figurative artist twenty years ago, but then had a sudden and complete move towards abstraction. I am left with a sense of a gulf between the two disciplines. This series of sculptures is an attempt to investigate unfinished business."

100 days: sketched in marble by William Peers opens 23rd April - 15th May at the John Martin Gallery, Albemarle Street, London.

  1. Thet really enliven the sapce around them. And you have the sense that they are all the same sculpture, which is morphing in front of your eyes.

  2. emile - beautifully photographed, aren't they. I think with each day and each sculpture, there was a distinct follow on from one to the next.
