Perhaps the power of sculptures like these, is that they combine an intense physicality (something else that urban man has lost) with the potency of their connection to the landscape, both real and metaphorical, that surrounds the mythic stories. If we are losing our connection to, in the artist’s words, ‘things that have relevance’ – how many times have you described something as ‘soulless’ over the past decade or so? – then perhaps art, and in this case, sculpture, provides us with ‘soul’ in abundance.

Solomon Fine Art is delighted to host an exhibition of new bronze sculpture by celebrated Irish artist Anthony Scott. Primarily known for his stylised bronze animals and figures, traditional in form, but with a modern twist, Scott’s focus for this exhibition of works looks to themes of prey and predator, love and revenge whilst drawing upon Celtic mythology and literature.
