Laurence Broderick

For Laurence, the transition from illustrator to sculptor was not necessarily an easy step to take. Whilst both activities conduct their business within the realm of visual arts, sculpture makes harsh physical demands upon the artist and can be merciless and unrelenting. However it is obvious that Laurence is the confident master of remarkable skill and craftmanship. His love and sincere appreciation of the natural world is declared in the sensetive rendition of form whether in his representational work or in the gentler abstract designs. He applies a sophisticated approach to the use of a wide variety of materials: clay, stone, bronze etc. The ease with which he carves the soft, rolling curves of "The Playfull Otter"series lulls us into a willing acceptance of the humour and affection these creatures can arouse, and the happy narrative of these animals at play .
