Overview

Clarke's and Chadwick's arresting forms are shown side by side

Charisma, resourcefulness, dedication and pioneering spirit are all attributes that can easily be applied to both Lynn Chadwick and Geoffrey Clarke, and from their prolific outputs it is clear that both had an indefatigable passion for sculpture and brought exacting standards to their making. After crossing paths constantly in the 1950s, for the rest of their lives Chadwick and Clarke rarely communicated. Yet at the root of their 'rivalry' there was undoubtedly admiration and a common set of concerns, formal and aesthetic. It is these that Conjunction sets out to explore. Both an essay by Judith LeGrove and an introduction by Polly Bielecka describe Clarke and Chadwick's parallel careers and characters, and their meeting points.
