LONDON.- Blain|Southern and Blain|Di Donna present the largest ever survey of Lynn Chadwick’s work, with three concurrent exhibitions in London, Berlin and New York.

Coming a decade after his major retrospective at Tate Britain, the shows will explore the sculptor’s 50-year career, with each offering a distinct curatorial flavour as envisioned by the exhibition designer Bill Katz.

Blain|Southern London will feature a range of seminal bronzes from the 1950s and 1960s, amongst them Teddy Boy and Girl (1955) – one of the works which earned Chadwick the International Sculpture Prize at the Venice Biennale in 1956 – as well as the monumental Stranger III (1959). These, along with Beast XVI (1959), Black Beast (1960) and Moon of Alabama (1957), serve to illustrate not only Chadwick’s unerring interest in human and animal forms, but the mainstay of his artistic practice; the manner in which he blurred the lines between figuration and abstraction.

While Chadwick is best known for his bronze works, on occasion he worked with other materials. To reflect this his group of Formica on wood ‘Pyramid’ and ‘Split’ sculptures –  clean geometric shapes produced in 1966 will be shown in the main galleries. Downstairs a group of welded stainless steel beasts will represent Chadwick’s late exploration of the medium of steel in the late 1980s and early 1990s.

In addition, and coinciding with the Blain|Southern London exhibition, the Royal Academy of Arts will show four monumental steel beasts in its courtyard from 14th April – 16th May 2014, curated by Edith Devaney.

The three exhibitions will be accompanied by two new publications on the artist. Lynn Chadwick The Sculptures at Lypiatt Park will be available from May, while a second publication that will document the three exhibitions will be available in June.
