The Ponderer by Jilly Sutton
The ninth edition of Leicester’s annual outdoor exhibition of contemporary sculpture, organised by the University of Leicester and held in the Harold Martin Botanic garden, opened to the public at the end of last month.
Stranded Heart by Diane Maclean
63 pieces from more than 40 sculptors have been selected to explore this year’s theme, Heart Head and Hands, explained by curator Dr John Sydney Carter FRBS as “the three main areas in which inner creation works”. Approaches range from figurative to abstract, with materials used including bamboo, limestone, marble and even plastic bags. We’ve photographed our favourite pieces from the show.
