Glynn Williams: Echo

The theme of Glynn Williams' sculpture is mankind: the struggles within each individual and also our relationships with other people. His work became figurative in 1979, and has recently moved on to deconstruct pieces, reassembling them to concentrate on specific asepcts.

The exhibition will show some of the sculptor's charcoal drawings - these are usually of family and friends. They are very much about the individual, in contrast to the archetypal figures of his sculpture. Glynn Williams places great emphasis on the importance of drawing as a basis for sculpture. This comes through in his own work and in the legacy he passes on to the sculptors of future generations - his students at the Royal College of Art.
