The constructivist and abstract works Lynn Chadwick produced between 1963 and 1966 have largely escaped critical notice or exposition but are an essential element in any analysis of Chadwick's unique approach to making sculpture. These sculptures demonstrate that far from sticking to one form of expression during the cultural upheaval of pop, op, and minimalist art, Chadwick was as in touch with the zeitgeist as many of his younger contemporaries. Out of the Shadows is the most complete survey of Chadwick's abstract works ever realized and finally recognizes how inventive and experimental Chadwick really was. Renowned art critic and historian Edward Lucie-Smith situates Chadwick's style within its historical and biographical milieu.
