Internationally-renowned sculptor Geoffrey Dashwood and TV presenter and Naturalist Chris Packham have teamed up to present a unique and stunning exhibition in new gallery spaces at St Barbe Museum and Art Gallery.
Birds of the New Forest will feature Dashwood's beautiful bronze life-size sculptures and several monumentals of New Forest birds.
The exhibition is curated by writer, TV presenter and campaigner Chris Packham, who is a friend and long-time admirer of Geoffrey Dashwood's work.
"Dashwood's technique is reductive; all but a few surface details are abandoned leaving a simplicity which emphatically strengthens each work. With aplomb and authority, he reproduces the functional aesthetics of nature's machines in a graphic and economical style, which with a sympathetic amalgam of internal form, aero dynamism and know physiology, produces all the tension, the sensuality, all the absolute beauty of living birds. These sculptures defy the need for anatomical or ornithological justification - they are quite simply ravising," said Chris Packham.
