Yorkshire Sculpture Park has unveiled a new work in the open air, as part of the park’s continuing 40th anniversary celebrations.
New exhibits include culptures by Julian Opie, Henry Moore and Elisabeth Frink.
People 15 (2013) by Julian Opie uses the artist’s signature abstracted style – stripping back photographed images of his subject matter to the bare minimum, leaving just a few lines – to transform ordinary members of the public into uniquely recognisable LED characters.
Henry Moore’s Reclining Connected Forms (1969) allude to two enduring themes within the artist’s work: the reclining figure and the mother and child. And also adding to the attractions are four striking works by Elisabeth Frink, which return to the park.
Running Man (1978), Standing Man (1984), Seated Man II (1986), and The Riace Figures (1986-89) illustrate Frink’s appreciation of the male figure for its vulnerability, and show the artist’s ability to communicate the complexity of mankind.
