New work by William Pye at the Royal British Society of Sculptors
'Beneath the Surface: A Decade of Projects Seen in Depth' opens on 5th June 2008. Alongside recently completed works, it will feature maquettes, drawings and photographs of five large-scale projects.
Professor Brian Falconbridge President of the RBS, said: 'For more than four decades, William Pye has produced wonderfully innovative sculpture with water, and we are delighted to present this rare opportunity to see recent work and drawings by an internationally renowned member.'
Having been on the RBS council since 2005, I accepted the invitation to exhibit my work there after fully comprehending the new found unity of purpose around its mission to advance sculpture and support sculptors. I am proud to be part of an institution that promotes such a wide range of contemporary sculpture in its galleries, from both young sculptors embarking upon their careers to more established artists.'
The exhibition runs from 5 June to 18 July 2008 at the RBS Gallery, 108 Old Brompton Road, London SW7 3RA.
