This exhibition is a poignant survey of sculpture with drawings by the late Zurich-based artist, Hans Josephsohn (1920–2012), whose career spanned more than 60 years before his death in August 2012. Josephsohn sought to capture the intimacy, experience and presence of the human form and this exhibition traces the evolution of his bold, immediate and highly physical way of working, from slim abstracted forms, reminiscent of ancient stone steles, to large half-figures and reclining sculptures, cast in brass and left unpatinated.
The natural power of crystals is a fascinating subject. During this workshop there will be an opportunity to experience the many practical applications that can be used to promote the natural healing aspects of the quartz crystal. Peter will show, with visual aids and personal demonstration, how to use the latent powers within a crystal and gain the benefits of good health and spiritual development for yourself and others. Peter has worked with Crystals for over 45 years.
Coinciding with Uncommon Ground: Land Art in Britain 1966 – 1979, David Nash returns to YSP in 2014 following his major 2010 exhibition at the Park. Two contrasting works, White Planting and Black Dome, overlook the Park's historic lakes demonstrating the artist's eloquent understanding of trees and the different properties of wood. Echoing Nash's famous Ash Dome, planted in 1977, White Planting comprises 49 Himalayan birch trees, which, planted in seven rows of seven, will grow to form a white cube on the lake's embankment. Referencing the natural cycle of wood, Black Dome is made from coal and charred oak. The work complements Nash's site specific Seventy-one Steps, a commission on the walking route to Longside Gallery.
