For anyone who has a love for the natural world the Exhibition at the Indar Pasricha Fine Arts Gallery
in London The Wolf and the Lamb Shall Graze Together is a must see. It runs from 30th October to 16th November.
The exhibition features magisterial sculpture of renowned artist Stuart Smith and the sensational wildlife photography of Alastair Boyd and provides an opportunity to see something of the wonder of the animal kingdom which is currently being lost at a rate of 200 species a day according to leading environmentalists.
Stuart Smith has had a great deal of praise for his work. One comment from the late art critic, Brian Sewell, stands out.
"I have lived with a Stuart Smith sculpture for more than thirty years and it has never ceased to give me pleasure; its wry humour and subtle beauty nourish my senses --2010 Brian Sewell
Born in the UK, Stuart Smith trained in Fine Art at St Albans School of Art and studied sculpture at City and Guilds, Kennington and The Royal Academy in London. His first job after graduating was as a portrait sculptor for Madame Tussauds (1973 78) in London and Amsterdam modelling key personalities for exhibition.
Stuart has worked for television, films and theatre productions. His modelling work in films includes: Three Muskateers, French Lieutentants Woman, Greystoke, Return to Oz, Razors Edge, Indiana Jones, Santa Claus, Hypersapien, Little Shop of Horrors.
His Public Art Commissions include the 2007 Bronze panels for Gloucester Gate Bridge, London; and the 2008 Bronze relief for Peel House, Regency St, London for Westminster Council and Candy & Candy.
Philomena Davidson, First Woman President of the Royal Society of Sculptors, comments on this work: Stuarts tall bronze relief located at the entrance to Peel House in Regency Street, Pimlico, is a really good example of the rich narrative that is a signature feature of Stuarts distinctive and highly original work. Coming up with a convincing composition for this historic setting in the heart of Westminster was right up his street!
He has work in private collections in the UK, Ireland, France, Jersey, USA, Canada, Holland and Spain.
