John Kennedy, ‘Mother and Child’, 1982, FLOWER + HEWES

The works of sculptor John Kennedy elegantly embody this dictum of the early Modernist painter. Beginning with the human body as the point of departure, he distills personal memories, visual observations and deeply felt emotional responses into an elemental shorthand that evokes the fundamental qualities of human relationship. This, for Kennedy, is the "common denominator between us all" and the inspiration that propels his creative activity.

Signature: Original signature engraved on the sculpture.
