Laurence Edwards ‘Doncaster Heads: Portraits of a Mining Community’

EXHIBITION CATALOGUE

7 January – 15 February 2020

In 2018 Laurence Edwards was awarded a commission by the City of Doncaster for a sculptural installation celebrating and remembering the lives of those who had lived and worked in the pits around Doncaster. Edwards decided to sculpt 40 portraits of former miners to be installed in the city centre. Sculpted from life in two-hour sittings, the portraits are beautifully modelled; affectionate yet sincere and as much a product of the conversations and relationship between the artist and his sitters as pure observation.

One of the few sculptors who casts his own work, Laurence Edwards is fascinated by human anatomy and the metamorphosis of form and matter that governs the lost-wax process.
