Exhibition in Leicester, 30th June to 27th October 2013
"A Change of Heart" is the title of this year's Sculpture in the Garden show at the Harold Martin Botanic garden, University of Leicester. William Pye is exhibiting two early sculptures, Brick Buoy and Triple Loop.
Images drawn in the clay of Brick Buoy suggest recession into the heart of the cone: a flight of steps, concentric circles drawing one in behind the surface and a triangle in darker clay, these are anamorphic projections which appear to the viewer from a particular angle. Triple Loop is a composition made from stainless steel tube, mirror-polished for maximum reflection of the surroundings.
