DAME ELISABETH FRINK Larger Than Life

The HEONG GALLERY PRESENTS WORKS FROM a major PRIVATE COLLECTION OF elisabeth FRINK’S WORK

4 NOVEMBER 2017-6 FEBRUARY 2018

Dame Elisabeth Frink (1930-1993) was an English sculptor and printmaker who became a household name. Her monumental bronzes typified the anxieties of an age. Instantly recognised for their power and prescience, Frink’s works began to be collected by institutions such as the Tate even before she completed her studies at the Chelsea School of Art in 1953. Her public acclaim was based not only on inclusion in museum collections, but also on commissions for public and religious spaces (Coventry Cathedral, Manchester Airport, Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral, Salisbury Cathedral, Liverpool Anglican Cathedral and others) and works installed in the grounds of country estates (notably, Ragley Hall, Chatsworth and Sherborne House).
 
Larger Than Life is the first major showing of Frink’s works in East Anglia since her death and includes works from a leading private collection. A daughter of the region, her first representations of warlike figures and the horrors of conflict date from her adolescence spent beside a military airfield in Suffolk during much of the Second World War. As a counterpoint to the works in the collection, Frink’s lifelong engagement with religious sculpture is represented by the larger-than-life Walking Madonna (1981), on loan from the Ingram Collection.
